By the way, I can’t say enough good things about these devices. They are downright magical. What a brilliant idea. These elicit a correct production of /r/ so quickly. Amazing!
My son has been in speech therapy for years and it wasn’t until he began to use the Bite-R that we began to see real results. Over the past few months, he is more aware of proper placement of his r sounds and his intelligibility has increased. While we still have a ways to go, the Bite-R has been instrumental in boosting his confidence and pronunciation. The customer service and support has been exceptional as well. Thank you Bite-R
As a pediatric Speech Pathologist for more than 15 years, I am so glad I gave the Bite-R a chance. This product has been life-changing for many of my clients. I can’t sing it’s praises enough! I tell all my SLP co-workers how great it is, as well as how quickly I have seen results with it. I have seen clients go from not being able to say the /r/ at all to producing amazing /r/ sounds after only a couple of sessions. I plan to use the Bite-R with as many clients struggling with the /r/ sound as I can. The only regret I have is that I didn’t invent this tool myself! – K. Lengacher, Indiana
I found the Bite R at ASHA Connect one year and had the opportunity to have Susan herself show me how it worked, but I can’t lie, I was skeptical. It wasn’t until a few months later that I began working with a child who had been working on /r/ for many years with no success. It was then that I decided to give the Bite R a try and have been hooked ever since! The Bite R allows therapists to help children FEEL the /r/ tongue tension, and teach them a motor plan or “spot” that allows them to be successful in all /r/ productions. I have found huge success in the Bite R and I will continue to use it for all of my children who are working on /r/!
