Chewy Tubes are a great way to build jaw strength, back of tongue strength and build rotary chewing. They are resilient, non-toxic, latex free and lead free. They do not contain PVC or phthalates. The "T" shape design allows children and adults to easily hold it and keeps them from pushing the tube too far back in the mouth to cause gagging.
There are different colors. Each color represents a thickness with the blue chewy tube being the thickest of the four colors. They can also be used to for sensory stimulation or redirect children from chewing on their clothes or mouthing on non-food objects.
At Best Speech Therapy, PLLC, we recommend 2 yellow chewy tubes for the "yang yang" exercise.
The best part is that these tools are so affordable that you can buy them in pairs for each member of the family to help encourage your child to yang as recommended by their speech pathologist, orofacial myofunctional therapist, or other healthcare provider.
