My little guy, Logan, he turned two years old at the end of February 26th. Logan has huge chewing sensory needs, where he bites everything and anything. We ordered him this Munchable chew-necklace from Amazon, it’s recommended for children on the spectrum and it’s really helping our little guy with his sensory needs.
The reason, I highly recommend this necklace is because, there are beads all the way around it. We’ve tried other chew-necklaces that have only the Chuy (One piece) hanging on a quick-release string-rope. I found Logan was just putting the string in his mouth, and it wasn’t fulfilling the need to “chew”. This one works much better for less developed motor-skills (since he’s only 2 he’s still working on those fine motor skills) He can grab this one quickly and chew anywhere. This one comes with a quick-release clasp as well.
When Logan was younger we used an amber necklace during teething which seemed to help with his chewing/need to bite when he overwhelmed or overstimulated.
If a little bit of my knowledge could help others who are going through a similar situation I am happy to share.
