The Textured Grabber features three different surfaces to chew on: one smooth, one with circular bumps, and one with rectangular bumps. These textures simulate the feel of actual food for realistic non-food chewing practice. They also add extra tactile sensation to the lips, cheeks, gums, and tongue to help desensitize the mouth, decrease decrease oral defensiveness/aversions, and transition individuals with sensory issues from puréeed to textured foods.
The Grabber can also be used:
As an oral fidget for sensory seekers craving stimulation and proprioceptive input
As a safe alternative to chewing on hands, knuckles, shirts, pencils, etc.
As an alternative to tooth-grinding and/or thumb-sucking
To exercise the lips, tongue, cheeks, and especially the jaw
To allow the mouth to learn and grow strong through oral exploration
To practice biting/chewing without the risk of choking
To build oral strength, mobility, and control
To satisfy the urge to chew for individuals who are fed through a g-tube
