It seems that the researcher has found a way to take a therapy that works (oromyofunctional therapy) and then use a different word (nonspeech oral motor exercises) to push the idea that there is no relationship between strength and function of the muscles in the mouth. There is so much research to back up using exercises to strengthen the mouth.

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 Oral-motor treatments range from passive to active (e.g., range-of-motion activities, resistance exercises, or chewing and swallowing exercises). Examples of exercises include the following: Laryngeal elevation —The patient uses laryngeal elevation exercises to lift and maintain the larynx in an elevated position Maintaining or improving oro-motor function which may include breathing exercises, oral and chewing exercises and individualizing swallow sequence, for example, cough postswallow (p. 50).
