If your child has sensory challenges, this newly designed spoon may be the answer. The DuoSpoon is an oral motor tool that can assist in the transition between soft and textured foods. It is made of sturdy, yet ﬂexible, FDA approved silicone and one side (the textured “speed bump” side) acts as an aid in increasing upper lip activity in food removal. The “smooth” side has a shallow bowl which is excellent for beginners or those with poor oral motor skill. This is two tools in one and children love the playful texture.
