Chewing is a behavior many people exhibit as a way to focus and cope with sensory overload. It’s extremely common to see children and students chew on pencils, their clothes, erasers, or even paper. Chewigem offers a chewable jewelry solution that’s much safer and lasts.
Chewing Solutions for Students with Special Needs
For students with special needs, chewing as a coping mechanism is even more common, as sensory overload can be experienced more frequently or intensely. However, there is an affordable and discrete alternative to chewing on clothing and other unsafe items.
Is Chewigem Silicone Chewable Jewelry Safe?
Safety and durability are key factors in choosing a chewable. Students who tend to chew may have preferences for shape, size, texture, and resistance from chewable items. Mild to moderate chewers may find the resistance and texture of the smooth silicone products from Chewigem a great option.
Commonly chewed items like clothes, pencils, or erasers often contain toxins or damage teeth. Silicone chewable items are tough but also flexible and soft. Not only is the FDA-approved silicone used for Chewigem products safe, but it’s also guaranteed to be lead, latex, BPA, PVC, and phthalate free. Silicone is odorless and tasteless and inhibits the growth of bacteria or mold. The non-porous surface is also very easy to sanitize.
Discreet and Fashionable Chewelry Options
Chewigem Chewable jewelry is a line of chewable items that are durable and easily cleaned. The necklaces and bracelets come in various colors, textures, and patterns. These chews can be fashionable or discrete depending on a child’s needs, making it easy to choose one that fits each child’s style or preference.
