Sit next to the child. Place the mirror in front of you and the child. Look in the mirror with the child and say,”Look at my tongue. Watch me lift my tongue and put it right behind my front teeth.” Show the child how you lift your tongue and place the tongue tip right behind your top front teeth (see Figure A). Your mouth should be open wide enough for the child to see your tongue movement. Demonstrate this for the child again.
