What are Oral-Motor Skills?

Oral-Motor Skills refer to the coordination of the muscles of the jaw, mouth, tongue, and lips. Adequate strength and coordination of these muscles are necessary for efficient chewing and swallowing as well as for proper articulation and speech. Adapted eating utensils and cups can help facilitate or accommodate for difficulties in oral-motor control. And, keeping in mind that children learn best through play, we have also included some fun toys and tools to facilitate oral-motor skills!
