Language And Speech
The Kumquats hand puppets are a great support to speech therapists when working with children.
Remember, every child is unique and will reach their milestones in different ways and times. The language spoken at home and cultural norms can influence the way that we communicate.
For that reason we have developed our special hand puppets with teeth and a flexible tongue. They are a unique aid to demonstrate the mouth and tongue position. The tongue can be moved in between or behind the teeth. The child can follow the movement of lips and tongue and can copy the puppet. We have learned that kids are more likely to follow the instructions of a puppet than of an adult.
