oral sensory issues

Looking for some new ideas for an autictic child with oral sensory issues. Every thing goes into her mouth. Especially finger in nose then mouth, glue stick.

Running out of idea and i feel like I may be overlooking the obvious.

Can you talk to an occupational therapist, there are rubber stick type things that are designed for kids as you described....not great to look at, but is better than everything you listed.
Good luck

The oral sensory items should be kept in your occupational therapist's office. I sub in special ed sometimes and have seen the "chew" sticks used. They come in different shapes and are used as a tool not all day from what I have observed. Not really pretty but better than noses and glue and sticks. The kids do like and use them.

gum

I allow certain students to chew gum their parents have sent from home. They are only allowed to chew it in my room and need to spit it out before leaving. I have found it gives the oral stimulation in an appropriate way.

sped91:
the ironic thing about the gum is that my student flips if she sees or thinks she sees someone chewing gum.

VaBteach:
My concern would be how often to allow the use of the chew toy and when.


Thanks for the ideas.

I ordered some chew bracelets from a place called Therapy Shop, or something like that. They're $15 for a set of 3. They look like regular o-ring type bracelets, so they're socially acceptable for my 5th & 6th graders. They can be worn on the wrist when not being chewed. I ordered some as an experiment, and now about a third of my kids want one.

I have a girl who sucks her thumb-a 2nd grader. I also have about 4 or 5 students who suck on their clothes until they are soaking wet or they have made a hole in them. They suck on their sleeves mainly. Why do they do that?

I sucked on my hair until around 3rd grade or so. For me it was an anxiety thing.
