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 Spoon Tip attachments turn any Z-Vibe® into the ultimate sensory feeding tool.
The Spoon Tip was specially designed by feeding therapist Debbie Lowsky, MS, CCC-SLP to support easy feeding and food removal. The size and shape of the spoon bowl are "just right" - 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.
These are 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.
Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times.
What is the difference between the hard and soft Spoon Tip?
What age do you recommend these for?
This can vary depending on the mouth size, but typically we recommend the small for 3 years and under, or the large for 3 years and up.
