ARK’s Dog Tip for the Z-Vibe® is the ultimate tool for sensory oral motor therapy, particularly for children in early intervention. This pup’s friendly face immediately sparks interest, improves concentration, and increases a child’s willingness to participate in therapy. Each tip has a variety of shapes and textures for sensory input both within the oral cavity and around the lips and face. Use the textured ears as spoons to decrease texture aversion. Or, use the bite blocks on the back of the tips to practice jaw grading and stability. ARK’s Dog Tip can also be used to work on biting/chewing skills, coordination of movement, discrimination, and of course play therapy. A charming addition to any oral sensory motor treatment plan, kids will love incorporating these playful “pets” into their speech and feeding therapy sessions.
This listing is for 1 Dog Tip. It’s available in two different versions: the soft tip (magenta) has more “give” to it, recommended for individuals with a bite reflex and/or sensory issues. The hard tip (turquoise) is firmer for more resistance and proprioceptive input.
