Oro-Motor Skills & Speech development in children
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.
