Children's Books: Mr Tongue Story


A book that encourages children to FOCUS on imitation of tongue & lip movements - Ideal foundation skills for speech, language & eating.

     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 imitation.

     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.
