Pediatric Feeding Intervention: Lip Stretches
Debra Beckman created muscle stretches that are used for a variety of reasons, such as helping babies who have difficulty latching, or children with neurological impairments (e.g., cerebral palsy) who may have trouble clearing a spoon. The Kaufman Children’s Center described this intervention as “non-invasive” and utilized to help “decrease frenulum tissue restrictions inhibiting range of movement of the lips, cheeks and tongue.” This handout is designed for SLPs working with the pediatric population to achieve these goals.
