Im glad the eval went good and you walked away with a positive feeling. We have had several OT's for Lexy over the years, and they have been awesome! And, they have helped us or had some great suggestions when it comes to discipline to rage, tantrums, etc. Keep us posted on his progress! I hope you feel better about some things now!

My son had speech therapy when he was 18 months old. A few things they did to work on the muscles in his mouth were - use a straw to drink at every opportunity and the Capri Sun's were the best because it's a small straw. Blowing bubbles, give him a whistle and let him blow, chew gum and things of that nature.

They also practice transitions ad nauseum throughout the hour-long appointment until the child starts to get it. This kind of intensive reinforcement is something parents can't do at home, but the parent can use the tools at home to reinforce the work that's being done in therapy.
Interesting! can't wait to learn more!
