Sensory Oral Motor Products for Down Syndrome
Question: I recently had a child who has Down syndrome, and I would like to know which tools are necessary for my child so I can support him as early as possible. Could you recommend which products would be best?
Congratulations on your new baby boy! That's a great question. Below is a list of all of the products we'd recommend:
1 Baby Guitar
1 pack of Small Flexi Cups
1 Z-Vibe Book
1 Z-Vibe Travel Kit (customized with 1 Probe Tip, 1 Mini Tip, 1 Soft Brush Tip, 1 Textured Bite-n-Chew Tip XL, and 1 Hard Textured Spoon Tip)
1 Mouse Tip
1 Bear Bottle
1 Lip Blok 3 Size Kit
1 Textured Grabber (Soft)
1 Y-Chew (XT)
Those oral motor items will take you from infant age and up through adulthood. If budget is a concern, the main products that you'll need for the first 12 months are the proMini, Z-Vibe, Baby Guitar, and Bear Bottle.
For older kids and adults, the basics would be 1 Z-Vibe, 1 Lip Blok 3 Size, and 1 Y-Chew.
