Autism Helper Product Review

From The Autism Helper:

 

Age Appropriate Chew Fidgets

 

You want to know what absolutely makes my skin crawl? Teens and adults with completely babyish materials. When I walk into a high school classroom and see wooden puzzles and hard cardboard picture books I want to pull out my hair and scream. Don’t worry- I behave much more appropriately than that. I understand how hard it can be to maintain an age appropriate environment when many of our learners have more childlike interests. But there are some simple steps you can take to ensure that you are still keeping things somewhat age-appropriate.

Sensory items and fidgets have come a long way with keeping up with our age-appropriate obsession. A new company called Chewigem offers some amazingly age-appropriate and definitely stylish chew items that I have been loving. I got the opportunity to test out two of these goodies and saw first hand that these resources truly are both cute AND functional. These bad boys are definitely Autism Helper approved.  These are two of my favs. I love how teenage and boyish they look:

 

Let’s talk functionality. I have a one guy who has teeth stronger than humanly possible. This guy has bitten and cracked an iPad. When I say we need heavy duty, we need heavy duty. Chewigem suggested this Disc Pendant. I could’t even get a great picture of it in use because it’s constantly in his mouth! That’s a good sign. More biting on the disc = less biting on his hand!

 

We’ve also been loving this Tread Bangle. They are a little on the small side so I wouldn’t recommend for larger wristed kiddos. But for this guy it’s perfect!

 

       


I would seriously wear this it is so cute!
