Strengthening the Tongue?

By Pam Marshalla

Q: I have a child who has weakness in his tongue as evidenced by slight tremors when protruding. What exercises do you recommend to strengthen the tongue to increase articulatory precision?

Have you ever taken a class of mine? If so you will recall that I never recommend exercises to strengthen the tongue. Instead I recommend activities to inhibit abnormal movements, and to facilitate appropriate oral stability and mobility. This is a very important question you have asked. Do you understand what I am saying in my answer?
