The DuoSpoon™ is a creative oral motor tool, which is actually two tools in one, for children who need sensory support. It is a mouth exploration tool which can be a bridge into purees and from purees to textured foods for children who have sensory challenges. DuoSpoon™ can also be used as an aid to help increase upper lip activity in food removal.
Do not wait to add this tool to your clinic or home!
