Abstract
Oral motor control has been found to have a relationship with language development by,many
researchers (Alcock, 2006) and numerous studies have shown that language dysfunction and
oral motor dysfunction often occur together. In this intervention study the author investigated
the effects of an oral vibration intervention program in four preschool boys with speech
disorder. The outcome, after intervention step one and two, was assessed with an oral motor
test battery including orofacial motor control, two point discrimination, oral stereognosis,
tactile assessment, as well as speech and language tasks as word naming, sentence repetition
and non word repetition. A parent questionnaire of benefit was also administered.

Results showed positive outcomes in all areas after the completed intervention period of six
months. All four boys made improvements regarding oral stereognostic ability and orofacial
motor control and two of four boys improved on speech tasks. All the parents experienced
some benefit from the vibration therapy and most of them found it cost-beneficial (Less)
