My patient's moms love them too. They are great for introducing new foods on kids that don't like too much contact.
Stabilize the tongue and work on food aversions / oral defensiveness|||ARK's Textured Spoon Tip attachments turn any Z-Vibe® into the ultimate sensory feeding tool. They're similar to the standard Spoon Tips, but with gentle bumps on the back of the spoon. This texture helps transition children from puréed to textured foods and provides added tongue stability. The size and shape of the spoon bowl allow for easy feeding and oral stimulation - big enough to hold an appropriate amount of food, but small enough to prevent the spoon from being overloaded with too much food. When used with the Z-Vibe handle, the Spoon Tips can help "wake up" the mouth, increase awareness, and provide stimulation to the lips, tongue, cheeks, and jaw. A wonderful tool for any sensory mealtime treatment plan, these Spoon Tips have helped many therapists and parents get tube-fed children on their first solid foods.
Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times.
