Re: Protruding tongue
I adopted three babies with Down Syndrome. They are all adults now. Protruding tongues were a problem we worked on a lot. It was a behavior that they all overcame. My daughter who had the most problem with it, took the longest to learn. It was all about me being consistent, and flicking her tongue back in with my fingers, saying "tongue in" to her, so she'd learn to be aware that it was out. There was one little girl in her class who had such a problem, that she had to wear a stretchy cloth band, like a hair band, going around her chin, and up over her head, to hold her mouth shut. It worked, but it took a very long time.
