- Allow hesitant / orally defensive children to explore the various sensations in their hands and on their arms first, slowly working towards acceptance in the mouth for oral stimulation.
- Use the ears as spoons! One ear has a smooth backside. The other ear has gentle bumps for added tactile input and stability to the tongue. Use the bumpy one to help introduce texture to puréed foods and to encourage the transition from puréed to textured/regular food. The ears are also aptly positioned at an angle to make eating easier for beginning spoon users or children with limited dexterity (please directly supervise when the child is holding the tool him/herself).
- Use Mr. Mouse during mealtimes and feeding therapy to decrease food anxiety. The various textures and sensations can also help "wake up" the mouth, decrease oral aversions, and normalize sensitivities.
- Use the various heights of the tip to practice jaw grading and stability - have the child practice biting the ears, the side of the face, the bite block on the back of the tip, etc. to practice gauging how far they should open their mouth.

- Have fun!
