Collection: Chewing with Autism

Biting or chewing hard objects is part of stimming behaviours in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Stimming is a self-regulatory mechanism for people with ASD to cope with anxiety. Many individuals with autism also experience challenges related to oral care and chewing, which can impact their overall health and well-being. Here we have a range of items that can help children when they need to chew.

Challenges with Chewing in Autism

Chewing can be a challenge for individuals with autism. Sensory issues may cause discomfort or aversion to certain textures, tastes, or temperatures of food. Some individuals with autism may have limited food preferences and may only accept a narrow range of foods. This can lead to nutritional deficiencies and other health problems.

Strategies to Improve Chewing in Autism

There are several strategies that can be used to improve chewing skills in individuals with autism:

Sensory diets

Develop a sensory diet that incorporates a variety of textures and tastes to help individuals with autism become more comfortable with different foods and textures.

Chewing tools

Chewing tools, such as chewable necklaces or bracelets, can help individuals with autism who have a need for oral stimulation.

Professional assistance

Seek assistance from a speech therapist or occupational therapist who can develop a personalized plan to understand what is behind the chewing. Visit our Oral Care collection for unflavoured toothpaste and specialist toothbrushes.
