Naturally exercise the mouth muscles. Encourages tongue retraction and proper oral positioning. Prevents the straw from going too far back in the mouth. Progress from yellow to blue to teal for increasing difficulty. Made in the USA! See full details below.

ARK's Lip Blok® mouthpieces are simple yet effective oral motor tools.  They naturally exercise the mouth muscles to discourage tongue-thrusting, promote tongue retraction, and correct overall tongue positioning. They also prevent individuals from biting the straw or putting it too far into their mouths.  Simply press them into the top of a straw, and drink.

Lip Bloks come in three different mouthpiece lengths – 3⁄4” (yellow), 1⁄2” (blue), and 1⁄4” (teal). For the best results, start with the longest 3⁄4” length. Once the individual becomes accustomed to that length, switch to the 1⁄2”, and then finally to the 1⁄4”. This hierarchy slowly teaches individuals to put less and less of the straw into their mouths. When only 1⁄4” is inside the mouth, fluid is deposited in the front of the mouth where it is easier to manage and less likely to cause coughing or aspiration. With shorter lengths, you also get a better oral motor workout, as the tongue retracts more, the lips seal better, and the cheeks have more tension.   Lip Bloks fit into most standard drinking straws (measuring approximately .25" in diameter).  Cups and straws sold separately.

Made in the USA, medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
