Tongue-Steer – Tongue Lateralization and Elevation Tool
OPT is a crucial supplement to conventional speech therapy for those who have placement and mobility issues. This Tongue Steer – Tongue Lateralization and Elevation Tool can be useful if you frequently hear from parents that their child doesn’t enjoy doing homework, you want to provide more helpful advice to make homework completion simpler to achieve, or you want parents to feel more comfortable leading a session like we do in speech therapy.
It is a tactile-proprioceptive teaching method that is used in conjunction with conventional therapy. Typically, aural and visual stimulation are used in therapy.
OPT is used to promote speech clarity by enhancing articulator awareness, placement (dissociation, grading, and direction of movement), stability, and muscle memory.
Tongue-Steer is a technique used by therapists and parents to guide a child’s tongue to the extent of their problem and to show them how to position their tongues for different sounds. It features three dots to stimulate the tongue, especially the sides to help with tactile difficulties.
