Beckman Oral Motor Protocol Therapy in Eagle River and Wasilla

Beckman Oral Motor Protocol uses assisted movement and stretch reflexes to quantify response to pressure and movement, range, strength, variety, and movement control for the lips, cheeks, jaw, tongue, and soft palate.

The assessment is based on clinically defined functional parameters of minimal competence and does not require the cognitive participation of the individual. The protocol is used with children experiencing various challenges: infants with failure to thrive, excessive drooling, oral hypersensitivity (gagging and tooth brushing difficulty), and tooth grinding.

The Beckman Oral Motor is also used for transition skills needed to move from the breast or bottle to utensils and from pureed foods to regular textured foods.
