The Bite-R works differently than any other speech program designed for the R sound. The focus for the client and the SLP is the movement of the articulators.
The Bite-R provides a sensory experience that allows the client to feel the tongue movements and placements while providing tongue tension.

How the Bite-R helps
Tactile awareness of the tongue
Once children become aware of tongue placement and tension, they can replicate the R repeatedly!
Tongue Tension is one of the essential components of clarity of speech. Vowel sounds become clearly enunciated, helping to improve the feel of the movement between vowel and R!
Spontaneous Carryover of the R Sound
Children have left for the summer and returned at the same level or better than when they left!
Evidence Based Practice
The BITE-R is an evidence-based tactile cueing device designed to help children and adolescents acquire an accurate production of the R sound by increasing tongue tension and awareness.
Speech Pathologists around the country have expressed their frustrations about correcting the R sound.
Therapy is incredibly frustrating when the child is successful with a consonantal R yet still failing with the vocalic R.
Our product supports those efforts and makes R therapy consistent, fun, and attainable for both client and SLP. Give us a try!
