Sensory Savvy – Chewies

Chewies are a funny name for a great oral motor/sensory tool. Chewies are typically silicon based (FDA medicalar grade approved and BPA free), and come in a variety of shapes, colors, and textures. They are an alternative for those who mouth toys, chew on clothing, or require significant sensory input. Chewies come in different resistances to provide the most beneficial sensory feedback.  Chewies can look as simple as a tube, or as complex as a bracelet or necklace. Your occupational therapist is best suited to assess your child’s possible need for a chewie and what kind they would benefit from the most.
