Thank you for the idea Squeaky. I came across this site www.funandfunction.com last night (sorry can't get links to work!) and the chewbeads might work. Now if I could just find them in Europe - we live in Belgium and seem to get hit with taxes and customs fees every time we buy something in from America!
I normally lurk more than post but I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
My dd (12) has ADD and a language learning disability. She also has sensory issues which means that she is either sucking her thumb or chewing something (pen, collar, zipper pulls, hair, coat, straps of helmets / rucksacks etc). I would like to buy her a bracelet or something similar which she is allowed to chew and will stand up to some serious chewing without disintegrating!
I know there was a website mentioned on here that sells sensory needs equipment including bracelets and I thought I had saved it, but I can't find it in my vast number of potentially useful bookmarks. Could anyone tell me where I could buy such a thing?
