A pillar of OPT (Oral Placement Therapy), the Straw Therapy promotes jaw-lip-tongue dissociation through twelve stages of development. It can be used to teach tongue retraction, grading, controlled tongue movements, and lip rounding, among other oral-motor skills. This activity, like the Horn Hierarchy, is fun for clients and appreciated by speech and feeding therapists for its effectiveness and affordability.
