Goodbye wine cork. Say hello to the Speech RingTM! Speech Instructors have used corks to help students refine articulation by practicing text with the cork gripped by the front teeth. Unfortunately, this method can cause jaw tension and most of us need to decrease that tension, not cause more! You can practice with the Speech RingTM! and get better results and a more relaxed jaw to boot!

The Speech RingTM is made of BPA-free non-toxic, non-plastic material so it’s safe to use in your mouth. It’s made from the same material as night guards, so it will begin to shape to your mouth with the heat of your body for comfort. It comes in a happy little velvety blue pouch, with its own slim round case, and includes an instruction card so you know how to place it in your mouth and how to care for your new best friend! Have it with you always in pocket or purse to use as your Personal Articulation Refinement Tool!

Keep out of extreme HEAT!!!

Regular size: 32.5mm diameter (outside).

Large size coming soon.

This tool is for practice to refine speech, like a donut weight on a bat for improving your swing. It does not take the place of a speech therapist. pathologist or coach.

FOR SPEECH IMPEDIMENTS PLEASE CONSULT A SPEECH PATHOLOGIST OR SPEECH THERAPIST BEFORE USING. THE SPEECH RING IS A PRACTICE TOOL ONLY, IT IS NOT MEANT TO REPLACE A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL.

  • Personal practice tool for better speaking!

BEWARE! BEWARE OF THIS ITEM!As a certified speech-language pathologist, I highly suggest seeing a spech therapist or other professional who is certified in the area in which you are attempting to improve before placing a foreign object into your mouth.If it is too good to be true, it probably is. This is not a research-based method for improving speech. Speech therapists are trained to use research-based evidence to improve the client’s speech and language needs. This evidence helps us create individualized treatments. Please beware of one-size-fits-all treatments. This is not an evidence-based treatment.Furthermore, corks are NOT a modern tool for improving speech, so there is no need to replace them. Please consult a certified professional before purchasing this item.

Do NOT purchase for speech therapy! As a certified/licensed speech language pathologist I felt the need to review this item. This item is NOT endorsed by research, ASHA (the American Speech Language Hearing Association) or the SLP community. If your child is having difficulty with his/her speech, please seek the help/advice of a licensed speech langugage pathologist.
