Chewy Tubes are designed to provide a resilient, non-food surface for practicing biting and chewing skills. Use it to redirect students who are chewing on their clothes, to help those with anxiety or pica, or to build up jaw strength. We know when it comes to items for the mouth, safety is of the utmost importance. This oral motor tool is highly durable and can be used with children as well adults with a stronger bite.
The “T" shape design of the chewy tube allows students to easily hold it, and keeps them from pushing the tube too far back in the mouth to cause gagging. The hollow center provides lots of opportunity for jaw movement and oral motor feedback. They are designed by a Speech and Language Pathologist (SLP) with over 20 years of experience. You can feel comfortable providing it to your special needs students because they are non-toxic, latex free and lead free. Furthermore, they do not contain PVC or phthalates.
You have your choice of colors: red, blue, green or yellow. The blue chewy tube is the thickest of the four colors and most durable. The green chewy tube is sometimes referred to as a "knobby tube" because it has bumps over the surface to provide extra sensory input.
