Chewing Gum helps with oral motor

by Alexis

I use chewing gum. It gets the mouth muscles working. It also helps with organizing the mouth. Its like using spandex for body mapping.

Gum gives my son a map to organize and better use the muscles in his mouth. I also use harmonica for blowing, water whistles, flutes and whistles of different sizes.
Bubbles and bubbles wands help for blowing along with balloons.
