Straws

Made in the USA  Straws are a wonderful oral motor exercise.  Drinking from a straw requires a lot of oral motor work: the lips must be pursed and closed around the straw, the tongue tense and retracted, and the cheeks taut. For the best results, use straws with a Lip Blok, which will ensure that the lips are doing all of the work (without biting on the straw for stability).  Lip Bloks also make sure that the straw encourages tongue retraction (instead of a tongue thrust / suckle when the straw is too far into the mouth).  Click on the images below to learn more.
