ARK's Y-Chew® Oral Motor Chew
ARK's Y-Chew® is an oral motor chew tool with 3 extensions to chew on. Each "arm" of the Y shape features a different texture: one smooth, one ribbed, and one with gentle bumps for a varying sensory experience.
Use ARK's Y-Chew as an oral fidget for sensory seekers who crave chewing, or for anyone who needs to chew for any reason (as a safe alternative to biting your nails or grinding your teeth, as a way for individuals fed via g-tube to still be able to chew on something orally, and so forth). The Y-Chew is also a staple oral motor/feeding therapy tool. Use it to practice biting/chewing skills without the risk of choking, or to work on jaw strength and stability, or to help decrease oral sensitivities/food aversions.
- XT / Medium Firm - XT stands for "Xtra Tough." These are firmer, but still somewhat chewy. Recommended for moderate chewers. Or, individuals working on building jaw strength.
- 3 different 'arms' to chew on - all long enough to reach the back molars.
- Ribs and bumps provide added sensory input.
- All made in the USA.
- Medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
Caution: This product is not a toy. Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use. How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.). While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly. Please supervise at all times, regularly inspect the chew, and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.
