A smaller version of the Probe Tip for babies and toddlers up to 2½ years (depending on the size of the oral cavity). The rectangular shape has 3 different surfaces: bumpy, striated and smooth. It provides a varied sensory experience when stroking and applying gentle pressure to the gums, palate, cheeks, tongue and lips. This may increase oral awareness for individuals with hyposensitivities, or may decrease oral defensiveness and food aversions for those with hypersensitivities. Can be used to provide targeted tactile cues during oral motor therapy. Each.

Most people are either auditory or visual learners, but sometimes these senses are not enough and we need to consider the sense of touch. Speech and Language Therapists have been trained to use tactile input to teach clients how to lateralise their tongue, elevate their tongue tip, make a tongue bowl, close their lips, learn a rotary chew, position the articulators for sound production and other oral motor skills. Vibration provides a new level of sensory stimulation to increase awareness and to draw more acute attention to the articulators. Vibration can also be calming and organizing.
All these products are lead-, latex-, PVC-, BPA- and phthalate-free, and are for supervised use under the guidance of a therapist or trained carer. Change the Tips for work on speech and feeding skills. All Tips require a Z-Vibe® or Z-Grabber™. The Soft options are made from a softer, more resilient material for those with a bite reflex and/or sensory issues.
