Designed for those smaller mouths, ARK's Oral Motor proMini™ is a smaller version of a Probe. It has a rectangular tip that is bumpy on one side, striated on the other, and smooth along the edges. These textured surfaces provide tactile input, awareness, and sensation. Use as an oral massage brush to stimulate the gums, palate, lips, cheek, and tongue by tapping, stroking, and applying gentle pressure. For individuals with oral sensitivities or aversions, start with the smooth sides, as they provide the least input. Then progress to the striated side, and eventually the bumpy side. You can also dip the proMini in foods for use as a "dipper spoon" in feeding therapy - a great tactic for beginning spoon-users and/or to introduce texture to puréed foods.
