As A Parent What Can I Do To Improve My Child's Feeding and Speech?
Do you ever wonder why your child is difficult to understand or having trouble eating?  Has your therapist discussed normal oral-motor development and its impact on speech clarity and feeding?  Can you pinpoint where your child's oral motor skills stopped developing in the normal pattern?  Have you asked yourself why your child seems to do well with his/her gross motor and fine motor development but speech just isn't progressing at the same rate? Come learn answers to these and many other questions that parents of children and adults with Down syndrome ask daily along with easy tips on how you can impact your child's motor system (at any age) right now at home.  Discover what OPT (oral placement therapy) is and how it may be helpful in your child's speech, language and feeding development.
