Talk Tools

Talk Tools is a muscle-based program used to strengthen weak and/or uncoordinated muscles used for respiration, speech, and feeding. At Pediatric Therapy Partners, the Talk Tools program is used by qualified therapists, often combined with other therapeutic techniques to enhance oral-motor, feeding and expressive language skills.

Talk Tools uses a variety of straws, horns, and other instruments to increase oral awareness, teach correct tongue and lip placement for speech sound production,as well as increase strength within the muscles of the mouth.

Talk Tools can be beneficial for children who need assistance in the following areas:

  • Saliva Control (Drooling)
  • Coordination of respiration
  • Respiratory support
  • Articulation (production of clear speech sounds)
  • Feeding
