Marvellous Mouth Programmes

 Marvellous Mouth Ltd. provides a solid foundation for children’s speech development and expressive language skills. The Mouthercise programme is presented in a multi-media format that allows children to access the programme through their preferred learning styles. Mouthercise teacher training is available on site as a robust hands-on experience for both teacher and children. It is also available as an interactive webinar. The pilot of the web-based programme was completed in May 2015. The next webinar training will be offered in early 2018. For more information, contact
