Chewy Pencil Toppers provide an easy and accessible way for school age children to self regulate through chewing.
The pencil topper also increases the weight at the end of the pencil which assists with the pencil falling into the correct position for writing.
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.
They are made of non-toxic, BPA Free, Food-grade Silicone
They are more hygienic as they can be washed in a dishwasher, steriliser or in warm soapy water
They are made of flexible material which decreases the risk of wear and damage to teeth from chewing
