A single tool that combines oral-motor stimulation along with feeding. The key feature is a textured bottom, which provides increased oral-sensory stimulation to the tongue during the functional activity of tasting. This integration creates a smooth transition to conventional spoon feeding. The bowl of the textured spoon is shallow, allowing for a smaller bolus size. The handle is extended to allow for hand over hand assistance. Made of FDA approved materials and color. Latex free. Large spoons (silver color) appropriate for older children and adults.
