"Finally! I have spent a small fortune over the past few years, trying to find a chew that works for my aggressive chewer. Finding the texture he likes always leads to something that is destroyed within days. He was excited to receive the sentio chew and I am excited to see it still in good shape after it has been used for several weeks. His shirts are no longer chewed up either! The only request I have now is that more colors be added. Seasonal shapes would be awesome too! Thanks so much!"

“Attachment disorder is a heartache for all involved. Anyway, I figured that my 5 yr old, who is VERY competitive with her siblings, wanted KidCompanions Chewelry Just Because Someone Else Had It. Turns out I was... wrong. She struggles with tantrums and rage (if I described her behavior to you, you might not even believe it), and tonight she told us, with a big smile on her face, that part of the reason that she's been having fewer tantrums lately is because, "When I'm angry, instead of tantrumming, I just bite my Chewelry". We were floored. And really grateful to you! »

My name is Jess and I have a ten year old with severe autism and sensory integration disorder. He chews all the time clothing and other non food items. My OT told me to try the KidCompanion Chewelry because it would help save clothing. We tried the original KidCompanions and found it couldn't handle my son's chewing I sent you pictures of the damage done to his chewelry and was told to stay tuned as you were making a new product for kids like your son. I was hesitant to try the SentioCHEWS because I didn't know if I wanted to try another product and have it fail! But I talked to his OT and she said give it a chance. So I bought SentioCHEWS and, you know what, it's everything you said it was and more ! It takes his almost violent frustrated chewing when he is upset and takes his stemming with it and doesn't give ! It's been two months and there's not even a dent in the SentioCHEWS ! Also, we have not had to throw a shirt due to holes being chewed in them ! So thank you SentioLife Solutions you have given this mother one more tool in her arsenal of things to care for her child. Thank you!”

For the Friendship Circle Special Needs Blog titled 4 Fun Products for Helping Toddlers Learn to Eat, she included our SentioCHEWS as one of the products to help kids practice chewing. Melanie is a certified speech language pathologist, a national speaker on the topic of picky eating, and the author of the award winning parenting book, Happy Mealtimes with Happy Kids: How to Teach Your Child About the Joy of Food! “Older Kids Need Practice Chewing Too - SentioCHEWS are adorable, durable BPA-free “chewelry” with break-away lanyards for added safety. For children with sensory needs, having something to chew in easy reach that is age-appropriate is often a must. Many kids with oral motor challenges benefit from a non-food chewy throughout the day to build strength and stability for eating solid foods. Plus, these are darn cute, and that’s important too! »
