Just one of the mile long list of labels that make up the Trevy Medical Portfolio.
In mommy lingo, it means that Trevy’s tongue muscles are weak. And because they’re weak, we need to engage him in activities that force him to use them. Using them makes them stronger. And the stronger his little tongue becomes…the more his articulation will improve. And I needs me some better articulation because sometimes I just can’t crack the Trevy code. Also…he’ll be a better kisser!
So I came up with this…
I used an old wooden puzzle tray that wasn’t being used. I knew I wanted him to blow through a straw. I knew because Miss. Speech Therapy told me so. But just blowing can be boring.
So to spice it up…
I hid pictures under died rice (which btw is a super easy DIY project).
Throw in a funky straw…
and huff, puff and blow the picture out!
But not without your fireman’s hat, of course.
Oh…and lots of slobber. Lotsa Lotsa slobber. Ew…I know. But slobber means it’s working!
It held his attention for a handful of minutes any way.
