PURPOSE The purpose of this systematic review was to examine the current evidence for the use of oral motor exercises (OMEs) on speech (i.e., speech physiology, speech production, and functional speech outcomes) as a means of supporting further research and clinicians' use of evidence-based practice. METHOD The peer-reviewed literature from 1960 to 2007 was searched for articles examining the use of OMEs to affect speech physiology, production, or functional outcomes (i.e., intelligibility…

EFFICACY OF NON-SPEECH ORAL MOTOR EXERCISES FOR DELVELOPMENTAL SPEECH SOUND PRODUCTION By
1 This literature review will describe the research associated with the effects of non-speech oral motor exercises (NSOMEs) on speech sound production in children with developmental speech disorders.
The Use of Nonspeech Oral Motor Exercises in the Treatment of Children With Cleft Palate: A Re-Examination of Available Evidence.
TLDR
The literature reviewed herein suggests that, on a number of different levels, the implementation of NSOMEs does not result in positive communication outcomes for children with cleft palate who present with velopharyngeal dysfunction or compensatory speech errors.

TLDR
A tutorial and clinical example of how speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can engage in evidence-based practice (EBP) for this clinical population is provided.
Speech rehabilitation in dysarthria after stroke, a systematic review of the studies.
TLDR
The several techniques to better guide the physician to delineate a speech rehabilitation protocol adopting the better strategies described in the current literature are defined.
A Systematic Review of Speech Assessments for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder: Recommendations for Best Practice.
TLDR
A subsequent narrative review was completed to ascertain the core components of an evidence-based pediatric speech assessment, which, together with the results of the systematic review, provide clinical and research guidelines for best practice.
Clinical and research perspectives on nonspeech oral motor treatments and evidence-based practice.
TLDR
This investigation presents detailed descriptions of clinicians' and researchers' views and opinions on NSOMTs and EBP and suggested questions that should be considered when making decisions about approaches that are not fully supported by EBP.
A systematic review and classification of interventions for speech-sound disorder in preschool children.
TLDR
The evidence for intervention for preschool children with SSD is focused on seven out of 11 subcategories of interventions, and cognitive-linguistic and production approaches to intervention were the most frequently reported.
Evidence-Based Systematic Review: Effects of Oral Sensory-Motor Treatment on Swallowing in Adults
Purpose: To systematically review and examine the state and quality of the evidence for the use of oral sensory-motor treatment (OSMT) in adults to improve swallowing physiology, pulmonary health,
Nonspeech Oral Movements and Oral Motor Disorders: A Narrative Review.
TLDR
Nonspeech movements have a broad spectrum of clinical applications, including developmental speech and language disorders, motor speech disorders, feeding and swallowing difficulties, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, trismus, and tardive stereotypies.
Response to Correspondence on “Treatment of Children With Speech Oral Placement Disorders (OPDs): A Paradigm Emerges”
TLDR
The treatment of children with speech oral placement disorders (OPD), the various types ofspeech oral placement therapy (OPT) used to treat OPD, the relationships of OPT to current motor learning theories and oral motor treatment, as well as the critical need for appropriately designed, systematic research on OPT are explored.

Evidence-based systematic review: effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation on swallowing and neural activation.
TLDR
This systematic review of the literature examining the effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation on swallowing and neural activation reveals that surface NMES to the neck has been most extensively studied with promising findings, yet high-quality controlled trials are needed to provide evidence of efficacy.
The application of evidence-based practice to nonspeech oral motor treatments.
TLDR
Despite their use for many years and their popularity among some SLPs for the treatment of a wide variety of speech problems in children and adults, NSOMTs are controversial because sufficient evidence does not exist to support their effectiveness in improving speech.
A nationwide survey of nonspeech oral motor exercise use: implications for evidence-based practice.
TLDR
There are theoretical and research data that challenge both the use of NSOMEs and the efficacy of such exercises in resolving speech sound problems, and speech-language pathologists need to follow the concepts of evidence-based practice in order to determine if these exercises are actually effective in bringing about changes in speech productions.

TLDR
Results of this examination lead to questions about the procedures that are currently applied as well as to suggestions for future development of nonspeech activities in the treatment of children's phonological/articulatory disorders.

TLDR
Speech intelligibility increased significantly in all clients except the one diagnosed with developmental apraxia of speech, and speech production tasks may be considered as important measures to understand the efficacy of OMT in clinical settings.
Task specificity in early oral motor development.
TLDR
A long-standing clinical and theoretical debate regarding the potential relationship between speech and nonspeech behaviors in the developing system is addressed, and integrated theoretical paradigms and empirical data on the development of early oromotor behaviors are discussed.

TLDR
A summary of reasons not to use nonspeech remediation techniques along with suggestions clinicians should consider when choosing intervention procedures for children with speech sound errors are presented.

TLDR
There was limited evidence of efficacy, with the exception of modification of loudness in individuals with Parkinson's disease hypokinetic dysarthria, for which there was some evidence of effectiveness.
