Sensory Oral Motor





What is oral motor?

"Oral motor development refers to the use and function of the lips, tongue, jaw, teeth, and the hard and soft palates. The movement and coordination of these structures is very important in speech production, safe swallowing, and consuming various food textures."

You can have either hypo-sensitive or hyper-sensitive oral motor. 

Signs that a child is hyper-sensitive (oral sensory avoiding) typically include dislike of brushing teeth, having their faces wiped, and are usually very picky eaters especially with specific textures. They are usually very particular about being neat and not enjoying messy play or eating.  They also may prefer a very specific type of cup/nipple for a bottle and not able to use other brands. They may also be unwilling to use utensils.  


Signs that a child is hypo-sensitive (oral sensory seeking) may include eating/licking everything. They may always have the tendency to have something in their mouths including non food items.  They usually tend to overstuff their mouths with food and very messy eaters.  They may like very crunchy foods and foods with a strong flavor such as spicy foods, very sweet/sour foods such as lemons, and very salty foods.  They may be nail biters or chew on clothing. Chewing and sucking on items such as pens, pencils, hair and fingers. 


Drooling is the flow of saliva outside the mouth.  It’s often a result of weak or underdeveloped muscles around your mouth or having too much saliva.

When your child receives a Sensory Processing Disorder diagnosis your child can meet with an Occupational Therapist to discuss your child's sensory diet plan and which oral motor tools and activities would be best for your child and what is age appropriate. Please always consult with a professional. This page will give you a few helpful ideas. 



Oral motor exercises help the muscles in the mouth and face for speech, eating, and saliva control.  Here are some things you can do with your child just for fun, and target better oral motor control at the same time. Never push or force your child to do the excersizes. They can gradually. 


Using chew sticks or necklaces may help with both sensitivities.  For those that are hyper-sensitive, it may help to introduce different textures to help stimulate their hard and soft palates.  For those that are hypo-sensitive it may help stimulate the palates so they do not chew on clothing, etc and give that sensation that their body is craving. 




20 Oral Motor Activties 

1. Try using a vibrating toothbrush to stimulate tongue.

2. Blowing bubbles and blowing up balloons.

3. Try using a sensory oral chew toy for your child. 

4. Chewing bubble gum and blowing bubbles with gum. 





5. Encourage your child to blow into music instruments such as horns and harmonicas. 

6. Have your child drink different consistencies of liquids and food through a straw such as water, smoothies, apple sauce, pudding and milk shakes.

7. Play a funny face making game with a mirror with your child.  Make silly faces in the mirror while you are brushing your child’s teeth and try to get your child to imitate. 







8. Have your child smile, don't smile, then a frown and repeat.

9. Practice eating different textures of foods such as crunchy, soft and chewy. 

10. Get your child to click their tongue. Make clucking noises.

11. Put yogurt or pudding in the corner of your child's mouth and have them lick it off. 






12. Have your child practice saying "oooo" and then "eeeee" then combine the two movements. 

13. Oral motor cards and games. This helps children master lip, tongue and jaw exercises at home or school. 

14. Get your child to lick their teeth while counting them.







15. Blow bubbles with a straw in a glass of milk or water. 

16. Get your child to hold a carrot stick or another small piece of food in their teeth. 

17. Read a book about Sensory Oral Motor for more ideas and exercises to try with your child.






18. Encourage your child to try licking lollipops and popsicles.

19. Try using some Oral Motor Tools For Sensory Processing Disorder. Always consult with your Occupational Therapist which ones would be best for your child's sensory diet and age. 

20. Encourage your child to blow kisses or put feathers in their hands for them to blow on them.






Use vibrating therapy toys around the face and mouth.  Use a vibrating toothbrush or vibrating therapy toys for their mouths and move it around their entire mouth. These stimulate the muscles, and promote more musculature awareness.

Oral motor therapy works on the oral skills necessary for proper speech and feeding development. Z-Vibes, straws, Lip Bloks, and chew tools are excellent ways to exercise the mouth muscles. Use them to develop strength, coordination, movement, and endurance in the lips, cheeks, tongue, and jaw.

And because they’re perfect for those with low suction or low hand mobility, they’re perfect for home or travel use so you can both have a little more peace of mind.
