Did you know individuals with Down Syndrome are commonly affected by hypotonia? Simply put, hypotonia is a state of lower muscle tone. This low tone affects all parts of the body, both internally and externally. Oral motor and oral placement therapies are a series of exercises used to address issues related to low tone in the mouth.
