It is widely recognised that many children and adults who have sensory issues find chewing a way of remaining calm. These disorders can include but are not limited to; Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) & Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
They also work well for parents wanting to teach their child to stop using a dummy, or fidgety kids who twiddle hair and chew pens.
We use HIGH TENSILE strength Silicone, it has passed bite tests of 100llbs of pressure. So it is TOUGH...BUT...NOT INDESTRUCTIBLE and WILL DAMAGE in time!
(How long that takes is VERY dependent on the individual and their unique chewing style!)
NOTHING IS INDESTRUCTIBLE! Or if it is, it is not generally good for teeth! We class CHEWIGEM as suitable for the MILD-MODERATE chewer.
CHEWIGEM??? although not indestructible, is more reassuring than chewing on unsuitable items that may contain toxins, be damaging to teeth or are expensive, such as school uniforms and books.
++warning - not suitable for children under 36 months due to long cord - strangulation hazard++
