Practice lip closure and biting skills through resistance exercises|||Invented by Angeliki Xygka, BSc / MSc, SLP and developed by ARK, the Squeezer Tips are oral motor tools specifically designed to facilitate biting skills and lip closure.  The V shape provides resistance as you squeeze it - perfect for exercising the jaw and/or lips.

They're exactly the same as the proSqueezer set, but fashioned into tip attachments for the Z-Vibe® (Z-Vibe sold separately).  The Squeezer Tip is available in two difficulty levels, sold individually OR as a set: yellow (easier) and orange (harder).  Start with the yellow Squeezer Tip and eventually progress to the orange one.  The orange one provides more resistance for increased difficulty.

Angeliki is a speech and language therapist, myofunctional therapist, and SI therapist based in Athens, Greece with over 25 years of experience, specializing in apraxia, speech and language delay, stuttering, feeding therapy, and tongue thrust therapy.  Be sure to check out the video above where she demonstrates how to use these unique tools.    

An excellent addition to any oral motor tool bag!
