A friendly tip for feeding, mouthing, and sensory oral motor input|||ARK's Cat Tip for the Z-Vibe® is the ultimate tool for sensory oral motor therapy, particularly for children in early intervention.  Mr. Cat's friendly face immediately sparks interest, improves concentration, and increases a child's willingness to participate in therapy.  Each tip has a variety of shapes and textures for sensory input both within the oral cavity and around the lips and face.  ARK's Cat Tip can also be used to work on biting/chewing skills, coordination of movement, discrimination, and of course play therapy.  A charming addition to any oral sensory motor treatment plan, kids will love incorporating these playful "pets" into their speech and feeding therapy sessions.

Suggested Uses

•  Allow hesitant / orally defensive children to explore the various sensations in their hands and on their arms first, slowly working towards acceptance in the mouth for oral stimulation.  

•  Dip the cat in food and use him as a "dipper spoon" to decrease texture aversion, decrease food anxiety, and increase oral awareness during feeding therapy.  

• Use the various heights of the tip to practice jaw grading and stability - have the child practice biting the ears, the side of the face, the bite block on the back of the tip, etc. to practice gauging how far they should open their mouth.

•  Have fun!
