Use Lip Bloks with straws to discourage individuals from biting the straw and/or thrusting the tongue. By promoting tongue retraction, Lip Bloks thereby assist in correcting tongue position. They can also be helpful with tensing for controlled lip and tongue movements. Try varying the liquid consistencies to supplement your other intervention strategies for increasing sensory awareness, symmetry, coordination, graded control for liquids, jaw stability, and lip, tongue, and cheek function.
The Lip Bloks fit into any regular straw and come in three different lengths- 1/4", 1/2", and the standard 3/4".
Lip Bloks also come in two flexible versions - firm and soft! The flexible material allows you to cut the mouthpiece to any desired length with a pair of scissors. They fit into most regular drinking straws and can also be pressed over Krazy Straws.
Each Lip Blok is constructed of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead.
