The overall purpose of this article is to highlight the valuable place that Oral Placement Therapy has within Speech and Language Therapy for children who require additional sensory input. This additional sensory layer to therapy has proven beneficial for a range of client groups, improving function where muscle weakness and reduced muscle coordination are barriers to clear speech. Many children require an eclectic approach to therapy. With traditional approaches using visual and auditory channels, progress can be very slow. Adding in an additional tactile layer can make a big difference to speech success.
