What would you recommend for a 12 month old who is talking and lateralizes many of her sounds? Currently, she is drinking from cups, not sippy cups, she does nurse 1 time a day and is eating solids. She is using straw #1, and the lateralizations decreased, but when she moved to straw #2 they increased. She is also using the maroon spoon for the spoon feeding exercise. She is not on the horns or bubbles at this point.
I would move her back to straw #1 where you felt like you were seeing more improvement on the lateralization. I would stay on that straw for a good amount of time and introduce the bubbles and horns while on this straw. Then work on transitioning to straw #2 once you are consistently using the bubbles and horns. I would also work on the apraxia shapes to try to get /m/, /b/ and /p/ sounds. See if this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
We are always here and happy to help.
