Thumb Sucking & Oral Habits

Kids can get fixated on oral habits, such as thumb sucking. Thumb sucking can seem harmless, as many kids grow out of it over time. However, when this is not the case, studies show that this habit can negatively impact your child’s dentition and speech production.

How We Help?

Speech therapy which targets thumb sucking and other oral habits is based on positive behavior therapy and involves shaping a new behaviour through the use of reinforcement and structured periods of practice. The primary aim of this type of therapy is to reduce old habits by establishing oral awareness.
