Provides a clarity in speech that is different than matching tongue position.

Spontaneous Carryover of the R Sound

Without homework, children often return to speech therapy with improved /R/ sounds

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.

As a speech pathologist I interact with children and teenagers every day. And because of their difficulty pronouncing the /R/ sound, they're frequently asked to repeat themselves. At this age they have strong feelings and opinions, and when they're asked to repeat themselves, it diminishes their voice.
