Lip blocks do just that- they block! Lip blocks prevent the lips from opening and letting the tongue peek out when drinking from a straw, which happens when kids have tongue thrusts. Lip blocks placed on straws help correct tongue thrusting, which is a reverse swallow pattern, and promotes a lip seal and cheek musculature for proper sucking skills.
