Beckman Oral Motor Protocol uses assisted movement and stretch reflexes to quantify response to pressure and movement, range, strength, variety, and control of movement for the lips cheeks, jaw, tongue, and soft palate. This protocol is used with children experiencing a variety of challenges: infants with failure to thrive, excessive drooling, oral hypersensitivity (gagging and tooth brushing difficulty), tooth grinding. Beckman oral motor is also used for transition skills needed to move from the use of the breast or bottle to utensils and to move from pureed foods to regular textured foods.
