Lip Straw Topper
Mealtime fun that limits excesstive straw biting whilst improving tongue retration.
This oral motor tool gives your children excellent oral mouth exercises that are specific to recorrecting difficultites with lip closure, tongue retraction, check tension, excessive straw biting and popping items too far back in your mouth. The lip blocks naturally exercise your mouth muscles to build your oral tone, discourage tongue thrusting, decrease tongue protrusionhilst overall tongue and lip positioning.The mouthpiece (the extension that goes in the mouth) measures 3/4" in length. The face of the Lips measures approximately 2.4 inches at its widest and 1.5 inches tall.
Flexible difficulty levels
Our lips are firm yet flexible. This means that you can trim the mouthpiece over time to increase the oral motor difficulty.
At the time of purchase, your mouthpiece will measure 3/4" (1.9cm) in length. As this length becomes more comfortable, you can trim it shorter to start a new round of oral exercises. You can repeat this process until the lips are only 1/4" (0.6cm) long. You wouldn't want to go any shorter as a shorter straw will not fit comfortable in your mouth. Plus the benefit of completing the oral exercises would diminish after this point.
