The Sensory Stix Program is designed to transition oral movement taught in oral-motor exercises into volitional movement for speech production. In addition, these exercises are useful in the remediation of tongue thrust and in improving oral resting postures. The “Sensory Stix” is used to place candy powder on the target articulator in order to provide a tactile and flavorful cue for stimulating specific jaw-lip-tongue placement needed for speech production and swallowing.
Candy powder not included: Use Pixie Stix powder, Kool-Aid powder or any store-bought sugar powder in a variety of colors.
