Oro-Motor Skills

Oro-motor skills refer to the ability of a child to control the movement of muscles on their face such as mouth, jaw, tongue, and lips. Some children face difficulty in controlling their oral muscles due to the lack of muscle strength, tone, range of motion, speed, coordination, and dissociation. Developing oral-motor skills are rather essential for sound production and feeding skills of sucking, biting, chewing etc. A speech-language pathologist helps children with exercises and activities that assist them to control lips, mouth, tongue etc.
