REREK vibrator is highly recommended for rhotacism therapy. It is the most effective and popular vibrational tool used in evoking and correcting the R sound.
REREK vibrator is highly recommended for rhotacizm therapy. It helps in the mechanical activation of tongue muscles. It helps to learn the sound of R too, as it is important for some children to hear the R before they start to produce the sound themselves especially those with hearing impairments.
How to perform the exercise:
The R sound articulation should be preceded by the professional diagnosis of anatomical and functional tongue condition and the patient’s oral sensibility;
Before use make sure that the spatula or tip is threaded properly into the stem;
Instruct the patient to keep his/her tongue tip against the upper teeth;
Place the tip under the tongue, along its centerline;
Turn the vibrator on after making sure that the tongue is properly elevated and it will be hitting the hard palate;
Clean or disinfect the tip/spatula after every use;
Do not use the vibrator for more than 1-2 minutes without a break;
During vibration of under the tongue area, move the tool back from time to time (e.g. every 10-20 seconds) and watch the tongue reaction, (this technique is called CUE FADING)
After observance of the extended involuntary patient’s resonance, change the vibration frequency or turn the vibrator off.
If the elevation is insufficient try tools like LifteR or the SPEECH BUDDY RABBIT to position the tongue high on the hard palate.
Note: During the exercise make sure the patient is phonically active while vibrations are on and don’t let his/her tongue rest on the vibrator’s tip.
