Welcome to our website! It is likely you are here to help either your client or your own child. Parents should visit our parent page. Our company helps with creating clear speech. Our product, the Bite-R is designed to create Tongue Tension. When the tongue is placed correctly, for the child, and has tension; the R sound is not only easy to achieve, the carryover is even easier!
This is our story.
One day, I had been working with two young children and neither of them could produce a single R sound. This was not only frustrating for me, it was creating a wedge in therapy. I knew I needed tongue tension, but nothing that I had tried before was working. I had to invent a product.
The Bite-R was created solely for tongue tension, but I wanted a device that didn’t give a distorted jaw or lip placement for the R sound. Having had no experience in design, manufacturing or business; the right people came along and provided information, support and helped me to give a product that has helped many children achieve the R sound.
