A large proportion of children diagnosed with cerebral palsy (CP) have speech and chewing disorders. Speech and feeding disorders and overall oromotor dysfunction are commonly reported in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Biomechanic analysis provides additional insight into the underlying movement characteristics in these children and can help inform our understanding how oromotor movements differ in this population. This complementary biomechanic information may provide researchers and clinicians valuable information to aid in developing future clinical assessments and interventions.
