Beckman Oral Motor Therapy is a specialized treatment approach that is designed to improve the oral motor skills of individuals who experience difficulties with speech, eating, and other activities involving the mouth and face muscles. This therapy approach was developed by Debra Beckman, MS, CCC-SLP, a speech-language pathologist who has extensive experience in working with individuals with a variety of speech and feeding disorders.
Beckman Oral Motor Therapy is based on the idea that the muscles of the mouth and face are interdependent and function together as a group. The therapy approach involves a series of exercises and techniques that are designed to improve muscle tone, strength, range of motion, and coordination of the muscles of the mouth and face.
The goal of Beckman Oral Motor Therapy is to improve the functional abilities of individuals with speech and feeding difficulties by enhancing the strength, range of motion, and coordination of the muscles of the mouth and face. This therapy approach can be used with individuals of all ages, from infants to older adults, and can be beneficial for a wide range of conditions, including dysarthria, apraxia, oral-motor dysfunction, feeding difficulties, and speech sound disorders.
