Product number: BiteBlocks100
Product information "ARK's Bite Blocks for Jaw Grading & Stability"
ARK’s Jaw Grading Bite Blocks are a great complement to any oral motor tool box. Specially designed to work on jaw grading and stability, each arm has a different thickness to practice various jaw heights:
  • The orange arms are 3mm and 6mm thick
  • The magenta arms are .7mm and 1cm thick 
  • The teal arms are 1,3cm and 1,5cm thick 
What is jaw grading and stability? Jaw grading is the ability to have controlled movements of the jaw to various jaw heights needed for speech and feeding skills. For example, note the difference in your jaw when saying “eee” vs “ahhh”. Or, imagine biting into a cracker vs a sandwich/burger. Your jaw has to open to different heights to accommodate those different sounds and foods. Jaw stability is the strength, coordination, and endurance needed to do so without the jaw sliding forward and/or sideways. Each Bite Block set comes with instructions including four exercises to help work on these skills. 
These Bite Blocks are firm for good resistance during jaw exercises, but not 100% rigid to be gentle on the teeth (for softer options to work on chewing skills, see the Grabber and/or Y-Chew). Each arm also has gentle sensory bumps to grip the teeth.
  • medical grade, FDA & CE compliant
  • No BPA, PVC, lead, phthalates, or latex
  • Each block measures 18,4cm long in total, with each "arm" measuring about 7,4cm long and 1,3cm wide. 
  • Dishwasher-safe
  • Sold in a set (1 orange, 1 magenta, and 1 teal)
Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times.

ARK's Baby Grabber® smooth
Color & Toughness: yellow, soft
ARK's Baby Grabber® is designed to calm and soothe infants who are in the early stages of development. At approximately 5-6 months, babies start mouthing and chewing in order to strengthen their mouth muscles and exercise their lips, tongue, and jaw. This oral exploration prepares them to eat solid foods and to make speech sounds later on. Soft and chewy, the Baby Grabber® provides a safe outlet for babies to develop these skills. It can also assist in self-organization, in the transition from puréed to textured foods, and in soothing sore gums. While all surfaces of the Grabber® can be chewed on, the extension provides input all the way to the back molar area. Highly recommended for any babies in the mouthing stage, but particularly those with hypersensitivity and oral sensory defensiveness.Measures approximately 10cm in length and just under 5cm across the loop. Not recommended for aggressive chewing. The light blue, yellow, and pink Baby Grabbers are soft and chewy. The turquoise Baby Grabber is firmer yet still chewy and pliable. Teething babies may prefer the firmer option, as it provides added resistance and input to the gums.ARK's Baby Grabber is recommended for children up to the age of 2 and a half years.After that, children should graduate to the regular Grabbers or Y-Chews. ARK manufactures the Grabber® in the USA! It's medical grade, FDA compliant, and contains no lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. It's also molded out of one solid piece of material with no holes or crevices that could harbor saliva or bacteria.Caution: although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Some individuals (particularly those with heavy oral needs and aggressive biting/chewing) may be able to damage the tools. Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows signs of wear and tear.

ARK's Baby Tetra-Bite®
Baby Tetra Bite: royal blue, soft
ARK's Baby Tetra-Bite® is designed to calm and soothe infants who are in the early stages of development.At approximately 5-6 months of age, babies start mouthing and chewing in order to strengthen their mouth muscles and exercise their lips, tongue, and jaw. This oral exploration prepares them to eat solid foods and to make speech sounds later on. The Baby Tetra-Bite™ provides a safe outlet for babies to develop these skills.Babies can mouth and explore 4 different "arms" - each with a different texture for lots of varied sensory input. The two rectangular arms have ribs: one with horizontal ribs that wrap around the extension, and one with long ribs that run the length of the extension. The two rectangular arms have bumps: one with mild round bumps, and one with zigzag bumps that provide more input. With all these different shapes and textures, the Tetra-Bite® helps introduce babies to new sensations orally, which helps prepare them for solid foods later on and also helps decrease and/or prevent oral sensitivities. The Baby Tetra-Bite® measures just under 12,7cm across. Each extension measures just over 2,5cm long and about 1cm thick - perfect for reaching the back molars where we need to chew the most.The blue, teal, and pink Baby Tetra-Bites are soft and chewy.

ARK's Bear Bottle Kit
ARK's Bear Bottle Kit is a fun and friendly way to make drinking easier for beginners and/or children with oral motor difficulties. It's also an excellent way to transition babies straight from bottles to straw drinking - skipping sippy cups altogether! Many speech therapists believe that sippy cups can promote improper tongue positioning and an immature swallowing pattern, while straw drinking can help strengthen the mouth muscles and encourage tongue retraction, cheek tension, lip closure, and proper oral positioning.The Bear Bottle features a unique valve that controls the direction of fluid - liquid flows up into the straw, but does not flow back down. Simply squeeze the bear's belly until fluid reaches the top of the straw and release. Fluid will stay at the top of the straw, thereby decreasing the effort required to drink. Highly recommended for individuals who tend to aspirate or have a weak suck with difficulties generating and maintaining suction.Kit includes: 1 easy-to-squeeze Bear Bottle with a snap-close cap1 Select-Flow Valvestraws - 2 tubing straws1 yellow Lip Blok® (3/4"). These tubing straws are durable alternative to traditional straws, and the Lip Blok prevents kids from biting on the straw or putting it too far into their mouths.Made out of non-toxic, food grade materialsDishwasher-safe Holds 236ml of fluidBottle measures approximately 5cm x 6,3cm x 15,2cmColors may vary Not recommended for carbonated beveragesRecommended for thin liquids (water, milk, juice without pulp, etc).Compatible with most standard 0,63cm diameter straws Lid colors may vary.

ARK's Bite Tube
Color & Toughness: lime green, XT
ARK's Bite Tube is a hollow chew tool with a different diameter on each end.Use it as a safe alternative for anyone who needs to chew. They can also be used as an oral motor tool to work on jaw strength and stability. The tube-like extension is perfect for individuals who want their chew tool to "collapse" more, whether as a sensory chew and/or in feeding therapy. As an oral motor tool, use it to practice biting/chewing skills without the risk of choking, to build jaw strength and stability, and to exercise the mouth muscles.Put puréed foods inside the tube for functional biting/chewing practice - when the individual bites down, they will be rewarded with a taste of food. The two different diameters allow you to work on varying jaw heights. Because the hollow tube provides less resistance than solid chews like the Grabber, this is a great "starter" chew tool for individuals with very limited jaw strength.Each chew measures about 12,7cm long overall, 1,3cm in diameter on one end, and 1cm in diameter on the other end. It is hollow all the way through the core. Like all ARK chews, the Bite Tube is available in 3 color-coded toughness levels:Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything) and/or those with limited jaw strength  XT / Medium Firm - This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers XXT / Very Firm - This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough"). It still has some “chewability” to it, but it’s fairly pretty firm (although not as firm/tough as our solid chews).Note: if you are looking for a long lasting chew tool for avid chewing, we recommend solid chews over hollow chews. Check out the Tetra-Bite for example.Medical grade, FDA compliant, NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. Each Bite Tube is sold individually - choose which option you'd like from the pull-down menu above.Exact color hues may vary slightly. Caution: This product is not a toy. Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible. Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use. How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.). While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly. Please supervise at all times, regularly inspect the chew, and replace at first sign of wear and tear.
