These fun engaging Chewy Tubes provide a tantalizing letter-shaped chewy for practicing biting and chewing skills! Perfect for oral motor training and sensory processing. Use with children on the spectrum and those with sensory and motor needs. Pack them in your treatment tool-chest as a delightful alternative tool for young patients and older patients alike.
P's & Q's are made of the same FDA compliant material as all our Chewy Tubes and offer a safe, non-toxic durable surface for biting and chewing activities. They are latex-free and do not contain PVC or phthalates.
P’s and Q’s are solid rather than tubular and offer a firmer surface for biting than the red or yellow Chewy Tubes. Young children enjoy grasping the P with their newly developing fine motor skills. The bitable stem of the P reaches back into the molar area providing valuable proprioceptive input into the TMJ during biting.
Babies enjoy exploring the little stem on the Q with their tongue. At about 6 months when lateral biting begins to develop, the child will swing that little stem over to the side of the jaw for more intense biting.
For larger jaws, the circle portion of the Q offers a firm bitable surface for bilateral jaw closure activities.
