Have you ever swept a floor with a feather or tried to dig a hole with a toothpick? Sometimes this is what articulation therapy for the “R” sound feels like…a lot of work with slow progress.
At Artic Bites, we have developed a product to guide children to the correct tongue placement and tongue tension to produce “R.” The end result is increased tongue awareness which increases sound perception of the “R.” Using our innovative product, children are able to identify and hold the correct tension and placement for “R,” making clear speech easier to achieve.
Artic Bites is here to help speech-language pathologists improve the delivery of their speech therapy for the “R” sound and have confidence in their ability to achieve lasting results for their clients. We are committed to improving the lives of children and adolescents by supporting the talented people who work with them. The Bite-R will reduce frustration for both clinician and child, increase progress, and allow for generalization and carryover. Children will be empowered as they develop independence in identifying correct tongue placement and tension through tactile cueing provided by the Bite-R device, rather than relying solely on verbal feedback of the SLP.
We are committed to supporting our customers from purchase to clear speech. We encourage clinicians to schedule a free online training with Susan, our owner and inventor. We offer additional consultation through videos once therapy using the Bite-R has begun.
