Therapeutic Breath Control Toys Aid Speech Disorders

Therapeutic breath control toys can give speech therapists another tool to help children affected by speech disorders. Therapeutic breath control toys that require children to blow an object into position to continue the action actually help them develop the lip and tongue motor skills necessary for articulated speech.

A speech disorder can wreak havoc on a child's self esteem, so in many cases the services of a speech therapist are needed to aid the child's development. Everyone knows that when children are bored, they tune out and don't get all that they could out of their speech therapy sessions. Therapeutic breath control toys keep speech therapy sessions fun, and they won't even feel like they are working.

Try using therapeutic breath control toys to enhance the speech therapy sessions of all children with speech disorders.
