for Oral Sensitivities

Oral sensitivities can cause a lot of problems, whether at the dentist's office, in speech therapy, or at the dinner table. To normalize sensitivities in the mouth, it's important to gradually introduce new textures and sensations orally. Mouthing and chewing chew tools is an easy and non-invasive way to provide a varied sensory experience. Start with the smooth Grabbers and progress to the Y-Chews and Textured Grabbers. Use the Probe, proPreefer, and proMini to stimulate the gums, palate, cheeks, and tongue by stroking and applying gentle pressure.  Use the Z-Vibe for a new level of tactile input (vibration can be very effective in normalizing sensation, both when there is little to no oral awareness and when the mouth is overly sensitive). During mealtimes, try feeding with the Z-Spoon, starting with the regular Spoon Tips and progressing to the textured ones. For more tips on oral defensiveness and aversions, visit our blog here.
