ARK’s Standard Lip Blok® Mouthpiece – Available in Three Colour-Coded Lengths

ARK's Lip Blok® mouthpieces are a simple yet effective oral motor tool. They naturally exercise the mouth muscles to discourage tongue-thrusting, promote tongue retraction, and correct overall tongue positioning. They also prevent individuals from biting the straw or putting it too far into their mouths. Simply press them into the top of a straw, and drink! Lip Bloks are often recommended by Speech or Occupational Therapists, as part of a program to improve oral motor tone and control (please ask your healthcare professional for advice).

Lip Bloks are available in three different lengths –

  • Yellow – 3/4” (1.9cm) long
  • Blue – 1/2” (1.2cm) long
  • Turquoise – 1/4” (0.7cm) long

For the best results, start with the longest (Yellow) length. Once the individual becomes accustomed to that length, switch to the middle (Blue) length and then finally to the shortest (Turquoise). This hierarchy slowly teaches individuals to put less and less of the straw into their mouths. When only 1⁄4” length is inside the mouth, fluid is deposited in the front of the mouth where it is easier to manage and less likely to cause coughing or aspiration. With shorter lengths, you also get a better oral motor workout, as the tongue retracts more, the lips seal better, and the cheeks have more tension.

Lip Bloks fit into most standard plastic drinking straws (measuring approximately 1/4” (0.7cm) in diameter). They are also suitable for use with ARK’s Flexible Tubing Reusable Straw (available separately) but please be aware that they will be a tight fit. They are not suitable for wide plastic straws or paper straws.

Choice – ONE Lip Blok is supplied, in a colour-coded length of your choice. Please use the drop-down box.

Straws, cups, and accessories are sold separately

ARK Lip Blok Mouthpieces are made from medical grade materials - Free from BPA, latex, lead, phthalates and PVC
