Comfort Chews provide children with a discreet and safe way to fulfil their need to chew or suck.
Chewing and sucking facilitate activation of the muscles in the jaw. This provides the child with calming proprioceptive input. This input assists children with Sensory Integration difficulties to regulate their nervous systems.
Children with these difficulties often chew their clothes, nail, hair or pins. They also tend to suck their thumbs or grind their teeth. Comfort Chews provide a safer alternative for these behaviours.
