Student with Little Facial/Mouth Awareness

I have a female freshman who, despite being a natural singer with a big voice, cannot imitate mouth shapes demonstrated!  She has to feel her face with her hands or use a mirror.  She is embarrassed by this and tries very hard, but I am at a loss on how to help more than offering the mirror or verbally correcting or visually imitating her.  (Ex: for "ahh" she curls her lips inward very oddly and with a lot of tension).
Is this inability a disorder of some sort?  Anyone seen this before??
