Oral sensory/tactile/proprioceptive seeking needs

Would you have any other ideas to help a toddler, 2 1/2 yrs old, who constantly mouths objects, bites and scratches. She goes to bedroom and bites on pillows, armchairs and duvets. Mom uses a chewy tube and sometimes works. Also gives her chewy and crunchy textures to chew such as craisins, siracha kettle chips and sucks cranberry juice from a straw cup. Any other ideas would be really appreciated to help this family.

Thank you!
