Each package includes the two sets of six Bite Blocks required to complete Sara Rosenfeld-Johnson's Bite Block Hierarchy. Instruction sheet included.

ARK Grabber XXT (Blue)
ARK's Grabbers are designed so that children can hold them by themselves. They provide soothing stimulation that satisfies the need to chew while also improving jaw strength.

ARK's Textured Grabber® is an oral motor chew tool with 3 different surfaces to chew on: one smooth, one with circular bumps, and one with rectangular bumps. As a chew tool, sensory seekers LOVE the extra sensory input from the added texture. As a feeding therapy tool, these textures simulate the feel of actual food for realistic non-food chewing practice. They can also help desensitise the mouth, decrease oral defensiveness/aversions and transition individuals with sensory issues from puréed to textured foods.
ARK Brick Bracelet
Made in the USA, ARK's Brick Bracelet provides a safe, wearable, discreet, and cool solution for those who need to chew. It has a unique 'twist-on' style that makes it very easy to take on and off the wrist as needed for oral motor stimulation throughout the day - a great option for those who can't resist chewing on the clasp/cord of necklaces. It can also be used as a sensory fidget - twist it, bend it, run your fingers over the tactile bumps.

Chewy Tube Yellow
This Chewy Tube is smaller in diameter than the original red Chewy Tube and is the second step in the chewing hierarchy. Chewy Tubes are an innovative oral-motor device designed to provide a resilient, non-food, chewable surface for practising biting and chewing skills, and as an aid to inhibit teeth grinding.
