ARK's Lip Blok
"ARK's Lip Blok® prevents individuals from biting the straw and/or inserting the straw too far into the mouth. Use these mouthpieces to discourage tongue-thrusting, to promote tongue retraction, and to correct overall tongue position. They can also be helpful with tensing for controlled lip and tongue movement. The Lip Blok® fits into any regular straw and comes in three different lengths - 1/4"", 1/2"", and the standard 3/4"". Each Lip Blok® is constructed of medical grade materials that are FDA compliant and contain no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
- ARK's Lip Blok™ works the mouth muscles naturally. Simply press the stem into any regular drinking straw, and you're set to go!
- Use the longest 3/4"" Lip Blok™ first, then the 1/2"", and finally the 1/4"". This hierarchy allows individuals to slowly adjust to the shorter length, which in turn teaches them to insert less of the straw into the mouth.
- 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 Blocks are sold in single pieces; use the option to confirm the size required.
