A sensory tool providing oral deep pressure input, promoting focus, self-regulation, and reducing stress for children with sensory needs.
A chew pendant, also known as a chewelry, is a wearable and discreet oral sensory tool designed for individuals who have a need for oral stimulation, particularly those with sensory processing disorders, autism, or ADHD.
These pendants are typically made from a safe, non-toxic, and durable material, such as food-grade silicone, to withstand repetitive chewing and biting.
They come in various shapes, sizes, and textures, catering to different preferences and chew levels. By providing a safe and appropriate outlet for the chewing need, chew pendants can promote focus, self-regulation, and calmness in individuals, making it a valuable therapeutic aid for Occupational Therapists working with clients who exhibit sensory-seeking behaviors.
The ice-cream pendants are available in 3 color-coded toughness levels:
- Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything).
- XT / Medium Firm - This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers.
- XXT / Very Firm - This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough"). It still has some “chewability” to it, but it’s fairly rigid / pretty firm. No chew tool is indestructible, but this is usually the longest lasting level for avid chewers.
