Oral Motor & Chewing

Sensory Wise Category Image Sensory Collection Oral Motor Gustatory Chewing

Sensory Toys that smell, you can taste or chew are great fun. They can also be practical for children with special needs who excessively smell, taste or chew things! This type of sensory input is beneficial to everyone, not just those with a special need (SEN)

Taste = Our gustatory system

Where? OUR MOUTH What for? We rely on our gustatory system to eat, drink and even blow up a balloon. Input to this system can be either calming or alerting to the nervous system. Foods that are sour, salty or cold can be alerting, while foods that are sweet or warm can be calming. Closely related to our sense of smell. When our nose is covered food tastes bland.
