Why Should Parents Use Mr Tongue eBook?

1.
THIS INTERACTIVE eBOOK ENCOURAGES CHILDREN TO LOOK AT AN ADULT'S TONGUE AND LIP MOVEMENTS. 

FOCUSING on tongue and lip movements will increase a child's awareness of their tongue and lip movements. The story focusing on the range of tongue movements as well as the coordination & speech of the movements. Awareness of tongue movements can assist when directions are given to encourage imitation of correct speech sounds. However the book works on more than just " tongue exercises. Children are encouraged to copy movements at the mouth level. This can help in developing the pre-speech skill of imitatio. Social skills can be boosted as well as children are encouraged to look at people's faces, tongue and lips which can build  eye contact. An increased general awareness of tongue & lips movements can also help the pre-speech skill of general attention as turn-taking is embedded in the copying routines.  

2.
COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY FOR ALL LEARNING AND SOCIAL INTERACTIONS.

​While research has shown that non-speech oral motor movements does not directly assist in building the tongue and lip movements needed to say specfic sounds in words (Ygual-Fernandez& Cervera-Merida, 2016; Russcello, 2008), we know imitation at the mouth level is an important developmental step.  Infants' language exposure largely involves face-to-face interactions. Children use listening and visual speech cues as well as social cues to learn to communicate with others. Infants' audio-visual speech perception is linked with later vocabulary size, suggesting a lasting effect on language development. (Alvater-Mackensen N & Grossmann T. 2015)
