The mouth has many sensory receptors including taste, proprioceptors and
touch or texture receptors.
For some children, providing a variety of foods or oral stimuli, can assist with the organization of sensory information as well as the development of fine motor skills.
Some ideas include:
Provide a variety of snacks (crunchy, chewy, hard, sweet, sour, or salty) during sedentary activities.
Provide a variety of snacks during fine motor activities
Provide a water bottle at the desk
Resistive chew with tug and pull (i.e. twister licorice)
