Today’s post isn’t exactly a treatment idea, but it’s a great tip to have up your sleeve. Most people thread yarn or a string through the “T” part of a Chewy Tube, but that’s often the part the child likes to chew on the most! Presenting the chewy tube on a lanyard:
My husband was the one who came up with this brilliant method (yes, he’s an OT too). He held a nail with a pair of pliers, and held it into the flame on the stove to heat it up. Then he carefully put it through the chewy tube to make a hole in it, and then finally put it on a lanyard.
This is especially great with safety lanyards that break away when pulled! How do you like to wear your Chewy Tubes?
