Oral motor therapy works on the oral skills necessary for proper speech and feeding development. For example, try saying “la la la” right now, paying attention to what your tongue is doing. In order to produce the /l/ sound, the tongue tip must elevate to the alveolar ridge (just behind the upper front teeth). It must also be able to function independently – or dissociate – from the jaw. Oral motor therapy works on these “pre-requisites” for speech and feeding.
