When to Use the Dropper

By Pam Marshalla

Q: My 6-year-old male client drools has language and cognitive problems but no articulation problems, but he drools a lot. I know of your dropper technique. Should I use the dropper with him or just tell him to swallow every 90 seconds?

As I am sure you know, a technique is just a technique. Therapy is all about finding out if a certain technique works for a certain client. Therefore in regard to this specific technique, if he can swallow on demand, you don’t need the dropper. But if he can’t, you do.
