Ark's Oral Motor Probe™
Designed by speech-language pathologist Debra C. Lowsky, MS, CCC-SLP, ARK's Oral Motor Probe™ is an excellent tool for oral motor treatment and sensory development. It has a rectangular tip that is bumpy on one side, striated on the other, and smooth along the edges. These textured surfaces provide tactile input, awareness, and sensation. Use it to stimulate the gums, palate, lips, cheek, and tongue by tapping, stroking, and applying gentle pressure.
Technical and safety information
ARK's Probe was specifically designed with safety in mind. The handle is made out of a hard, medical grade plastic. Then the same soft, medical grade material as the Grabber® is molded through and around a loop in at the end of the handle so that the tip will NOT fall off. At less than 5 inches in length, they’re super lightweight, compact, and portable. Ideal for oral motor exercises, gum massage, and sensory stimulation whether you’re at home, in therapy, or anywhere in between.
Suggested uses for professionals and parents
These orla tools are perfect for any speech therapist to introduce targeted tactile cues within the oral cavity to teach tongue elevation, lip closure, rotary chewing, and much more.
Parents can also use them at home when babies and toddlers are struggling with the transition of pureed foods to more textured foods. The oral probe can be used as a dipper spoon which helps introduce texture and different tastes. It's dishwasher friendly so easy to clean after each use.
