Improve communication and oral motor control.
Language is one of the most important elements of communication. It helps us express our emotions, thoughts and needs. Your child's grasp on language can easily impact your their confidence and social/learning ability. Listening comprehension is another significant element of communication and expression. We need to understand what others are talking about in order to respond properly.
Common symptoms of underdeveloped communication skills include: delayed speaking, sensory problems, not very alert, poor movement, poor oral control, problems with pronunciation, poor listening comprehension (not understanding what others are saying or slow to respond), poor grammar or expression, stuttering and etc.
Oral motor or language expression training may improve:
- Listening comprehension
- Picky eating or oral sensitivity
- Oral motor control and saliva control
