Chewing is considered a self-stimulating behavior, and it’s common among many children with autism. These behaviors can help children relieve stress, reduce anxiety, and combat moments of sensory overload. While self-stimulating behavior (or stimming) can include other senses like visual, auditory, and it commonly comes out through taste as well.
Autistic children will often put different objects in their mouth, or chew on their sleeves, making the ends of them soggy. So, it’s important for parents to find products and toys like these chewable necklaces to stimulate this habit.
