Straw Kit - Individual Straws 12 pack
The Straw Kit is an excellent supplement to traditional therapy techniques and the best exercise available to promote tongue retraction and lingual grading. The innovative straw therapy hierarchy promotes jaw-lip-tongue dissociation through 11 stages of develop-ment. This system helps develop the physiology required to normalise oral muscle placement and to produce proper speech sounds. Instruction sheet included.
Each straw is ranked based on its complexity and the level of effort needed to draw liquid through it. 1 being the easiest; 8 being the most difficult.
For those that need large quantities of a particular straw, they are now available in packages of twelve - for the price of ten! And no more reluctance to trim the tips of the #1 and #4 straws as called for in the Straw Drinking Hierarchy, because we've priced these two straws at twelve for only $20.90! Now you can always have the straw you need when you need it, and you can save money in the process.
Disinfecting Instructions: The American Medical Association states that a solution of 4% bleach to 96% water can be used to disinfect these therapy tools (10 tablespoons of bleach to every gallon/4.5 litres of water). This solution only remains active for 24 hours; soak time varies between 20-30 minutes. Do not place tools in the dishwasher to clean, as they will melt. Straws can also be cleaned using the syringes found at the bottom of this page.
