Chewelry is any type of necklace, bracelet, and/or chewing product that is used to provide oral sensory input to children (and even adults) who like to chew on things. Chewing helps to calm, organize, and de-stress as well as help increase focus and attention. Chewelry may be appropriate for your child if they:
  • Chew on shirt sleeves/collars
  • Chew on Legos or other toys
  • Chew on pencils
  • Bite their nails
  • Chew non-food items
Chewelry is a safe item to direct your child to chew on and comes in a variety of sizes, shapes, and textures. It provides proprioceptive input to the jaw and is typically made of non-toxic, food-grade silicone.

If you are interested in learning more, please ask your child's therapist. Several types of Chewelry can be purchased through our Therapy Shop.
