Our son has had increased sensation recognition due to using the yellow, hard tip Preefer Tip. We have used it for 2 speech therapy sessions and he has already started reacting by pursing his lips. What a joy to watch him react!
Cylindrical design with long striations for when a rolling action is desired|||ARK's Preefer Tip is one of the most popular tip attachments for the Z-Vibe®. It features a cylindrical design with long ridges along its circumference - perfect for when a "rolling" action is desired. Roll it over the lips, across the tongue, inside the cheeks, etc. This sensory input helps "wake up" the mouth and increase oral awareness for individuals with hyposensitivities. Or, it can help decrease oral defensiveness and food/texture aversions for individuals with hypersensitivities. The Preefer Tip can also be used to work on a variety of other oral motor skills, such as lip and cheek awareness, lip closure, mid-blade tongue elevation, sucking action, and more. For detailed exercises and therapy tips, visit our blog and/or consult our how-to guide, Tips & Techniques for the Z-Vibe®.
Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times.
Please note: the video features the ProPreefer, but the same exercises can be done with the Preefer Tip. Both products have the same tip design, but the Preefer Tip is to be used with either the Z-Vibe® for added vibration and sensory input.
