Ice Sticks promote thermal stimulation for oral movement. The program is designed for clients who cannot achieve lip closure, jaw closure or sufficient tongue retraction to mobilize a bolus back to achieve a swallow. These deficits are particularly seen in clients with Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury and Moebius Syndrome. Through direct stimulation of the lips, Ice Sticks’ multi-sensory exercises help develop prerequisite skills to implement an Oral Placement, feeding or speech therapy program.
