Chewy Tubes

Chewy Tubes are an oral motor device designed for practicing biting and chewing skills. They are a safe and effective tool that therapists use to treat clients who are developing initial oral motor skills. They are also useful for children who seek additional proprioceptive input. They work great for developing biting skills, instead of using real food.

In the video below, Rosalie, age 6, uses a chew tube to keep from chewing on her hands and crayons and helps her focus on the task at hand.
