SPEECH DEVELOPMENT & ORO-MOTOR SKILLS
Speech development & Oro motor skills emerge prior to birth and continue to develop afterward. Easy chewing and swallowing of food by the youngster without coughing, choking, or gagging is an indication of good oral motor development.
Oral Motor skills include:
Firstly, the hold, strength, and tactile awareness of hand for a child to hold the spoon.
Secondly, eye-hand-mouth coordination is another skill. This helps with selecting food, picking it. Oral motor abilities are the most refined of the fine motor skills that humans develop. Other skill is, getting food towards the child’s mouth.
Occupational therapy (OT) teaches you how to adapt to different situations. It can assist you in completing any task at school, work, or at home. Will an intervention from Occupational Therapy or Speech Therapy be beneficial?
Oral motor development begins in the womb and continues throughout a child’s first few years. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can assist children in these areas by focusing treatment on specific muscles or movement patterns.
