A fun & effective way to work on oral motor skills|||Do you have a child who is biting on straws or putting them too far into his/her mouth? Or do you need to work on oral motor skills like lip closure, tongue retraction, and cheek tension? Are you throwing a mustache-themed party? If so, ARK's Mustache Oral Motor Tool provides an excellent oral motor workout that doubles as a fun novelty item for both kids and adults.
The Mustache functions the same as the regular Lip Blok - simply press the stem into the top of a regular straw, and you're ready to drink. Kids will happily use this oral motor tool disguised as mealtime fun. Lip Bloks naturally exercise the mouth muscles to help build oral tone, discourage tongue thrusting, decrease tongue protrusion, and correct overall tongue and lip positioning.
This straw mouthpiece prevents the straw from going too far into the mouth, which means liquid is deposited in the front of the mouth where it's easier to orally manage. It also encourages the lips to close better, the cheeks to tighten more, and the tongue to tense and retract more for a better and natural oral motor workout.
Caution: Use of these products should be supervised at all times.
