Beckman Tri-Chew - The Traingular Oral Motor Tool
Invented and developed by Debra Beckman, MS, CCC-SLP, the Tri-Chew is a chewy mouthing tool for babies and toddlers. It features ridges, bumps, and swirls on each end to simulate the various textures of food used for chewing. Jaw movement and pressure can be experienced through the varied sizes of the ends which are also small enough to prevent gagging. The textured sides provide sensory input for the lips, gums and the tongue. The triangular shape makes it is easy for little ones to hold themselves
The Beckman Tri-Chew is available 2 toughness levels. Blue and Yellow are a soft chew and Green is a firmer chew. Please note that neither the Soft or Firm option is advised for aggressive chewing. The recommended age for using a Tri-Chew is 6 months - 2 years old. For children aged over 2 years, the ARK Grabber or ARK Y-Chew is a more appropriate choice
A note about choosing the correct colour for your child
Blue or Yellow - Soft for mild chewing
Green - Firm, but still chewy for moderate chewing
