Beckman Oral Motor Intervention

The primary function of the Beckman Oral Motor approach is to improve the strength, coordination, awareness and range of motion of the soft palate, tongue, cheeks, lips and jaw through the use of a variety of exercises that stimulate the oral structures.

It does not require cognitive participation from the patient; therefore, it is a versatile treatment option for pediatric feeding therapy that is effective for a wide range of ages and underlying impairments.
