Do you have clients experiencing difficulties biting or chewing? Do you have students that crave tactile input to their mouth and jaw? Then Chewy Tubes are the product for you! Chewy Tubes are safe, washable, non-toxic, latex-free and FDA approved! The yellow Chewy Tube® has a narrower stem (3/8″ outside diameter) and is used with a smaller jaw, typically an infant (9-10 months) or younger child, or it is used with an individual who cannot open his/her jaw very wide (clonus).
How do you use a Chewy Tube? Simply present a Chewy Tube stem laterally into your client’s mouth near the molars and encourage biting. Each Chewy Tube has a grooved handle so that the tube will not go too far back into the child’s mouth.
