    ARK's Basketball Chew Necklace is a sensory slam dunk!  This rounded disc pendant measures about 4.5cm diameter and 12.5mm at the thickest part (in the center of the pendant) - perfect for those who prefer chewing with their pre-molars and/or front teeth (for more slender options that reach the back molars, see other ARK chewelry).  Use this oral sensory solution as a safe alternative to chewing on pencils, shirts, fingers, etc. and to help calm, focus, and self-regulate. This is a firm or super firm/tough option for people who like to chew on firm/fairly rigid items

    Details:

    • Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord
    • Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic
    • Each pendant is medical grade, FDA compliant, and contains NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex

    ARK's Fairy Princess / Star Wand Chewy is a charming chew tool fit for royalty.  It features a long extension on one end for back molar chewing, and a fun star shape on the other end for front teeth chewing.  The star end has a rib around the outside edge for extra visual and tactile interest. 
    ARK's Fairy Princess / Star Wand Chewy is a safe outlet for anyone who needs to chew, and an effective way to help calm, self-regulate, and focus. Like all other ARK chews, it comes in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:
    • Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything). (red)
    • 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. (Yellow, teal, hot pink)
    • 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 rigid / pretty firm.  No chew tool is indestructible, but this is usually the longest lasting level for avid chewers. (Lavender, light pink, blue)
    We have just got the hot pink option in at the moment (Medium XT). Other colours are available as pictured. Please email us on info@skillbuilders.com.au if you would like a different colour. Each wand is sold individually (cord not included).  Colour hues may vary slightly.  Each wand measures about 15cm long, 5cm across the widest part, and 1cm thick.  This wand is a handheld chew and does not come on a cord, but it does have a hole on both ends in case you'd like to add one.  

     
    Please note:  because of geometry, in any toughness level, the star end will feel firmer than the handle (because the handle is slimmer).  Also, please note that by nature, the standard/softest level will have a little "wiggle" to it when doing fairy magic or knighting young princes.  The tougher the level, the more rigidity it will have.

    **Please note:  because of its wider shape, each toughness level of the Smiley Face may feel tougher than the same toughness level in one of our more slender shapes.  So for example, if you like the Krypto-Bite™ in the middle XT level, you may want to "size down" to the soft level in this wider shape.

    Caution: This product is not a toy. The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing. Contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard. Not recommended for children under 5 years.  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 and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.  For the longest lasting chew tool for avid chewing, see ARK's Y-Chew XXT.

    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    The Baby Banana Sharky Brush is an infant teether and toddler training toothbrush in one.

Loop a lanyard through the rear “tail fin” holes and children can wear the Sharky Brush as a necklace. Made from the highest quality silicone, the Sharky Brush is non-toxic, non-allergenic and BPA free. Soft and flexible, it's made of 100% medical grade silicone.
    • BPA free, phthalate free, latex free
    • Non-allergenic
    • Dishwasher safe for sanitizing
    • Freezer friendly
    • Easy to grasp in multiple places
    Invented by a dental therapist mum, the Baby Banana Sharky Brush is a fun away to encourage children to brush their teeth even when they have sensory hypersensitivity. "As a dental hygienist and a mother of three, l've found that to make brushing fun at a young age is key to establishing good oral hygiene and preventing tooth decay."

  • Bouncy Bands


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.

    For children who find it difficult to stay seated for long periods of time, Bouncy Bands for Chairs are designed to allow them to wiggle while they work!    

    For active, movement seeking children, the Bouncy Bands can provide the input that they need to stay focused and productive while seated.  Additionally, children who feel anxious when working, may enjoy being able to stretch their legs as a means to release their anxiety while they work. Those children who's feet don't touch the floor can use the bands as a foot rest instead of having them dangling all day.   
     
    Made from really heavy duty, latex-free rubber with loops at each end to fit around the included support pipes.  

    Available in regular and wide widths:

    Regular = The bands will stretch to fit chairs that have a distance from 33-44 cm between the chair legs.
    Wide = The bands will stretch to fit chairs that have a distance from 43-60 cm between the chair legs.  

    Please Note: Chair legs need to be less than 3.6cm diameter.

    We've now added 'Band Only' which is just the regular size heavy duty Bouncy Band without the support pipes. This is an option for the square-leg chairs as the support pipes don't fit over these. You can make 'tennis-ball socks' to prevent the bands slipping down to the floor, but mostly they don't tend to move anyway.

    To make tennis ball socks:
    1. Get 4 tennis balls
    2. Cut a slit in each ball
    3. Push the chair legs into the slits
    4. It works!!

  • Calming Clothing


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.

    Calming Clothing for Kids has been designed specifically for children with sensory processing difficulties, including children with a diagnosis like autism, ADHD. Calming Clothing provides children with deep pressure, or proprioceptive, sensory input. Deep pressure input can be calming and organising for many children who find it difficult to self-regulate. This can help them in all aspects of their day - their interactions with others, their attention, their activity levels and behaviour. Proprioceptive input also provides children with improved information about their bodies and this can help their motor skills - both fine and gross motor.

    Calming Clothing includes Tshirts and singlets that have a casual look and can be worn on their own, or under other clothing. They are designed to fit the child snuggly to provide a feeling of security and calm, but not too tight. They are designed with maximum length to the torso, and the singlets have full coverage around the neck and shoulders to provide extra deep pressure.

    Calming Clothing is made from easy-care premium quality 280 gram combed cotton and lycra blend. The fabric is soft, breathable and absorbs moisture for the comfort of the child. All items are machine washable on a gentle cycle. The seams are sewn externally, then sewn down, with the content label attached to the outside of the garment to prevent any issues with tactile hypersensitivity. The label can be removed by the purchaser.

    Use the following table to measure your child's size:

    Size Length (cm) Width (cm)

    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    The Heart pendant is a lovely addition to the Jellystone Juniors range of silicone jewellery. The Heart pendant provides an attractive option, particularly for our girls who need to chew on something.

    Jellystone Juniors Chunky pendants are secured with practical break-away clasp (designed to seperate easily when tugged).

    Size: W 4cm x H 3.5cm x D 1.3cm
    Approx: 25 cm hang (can be adjusted to suit)
    BPA free, non toxic silicone

    Due to vast range of children with sensory processing needs, these products may not be suitable for all children. These jewellery pieces are not indestructible and therefore will need to be monitored and replaced if damaged. The timeframe in which this occurs will be faster with more aggressive chewers so adult supervision is advised.

  • Lycra Sensory Swings


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    These Lycra Sensory Swings are made of excellent quality, heavy lycra material with strong, secure attachments. The multi-functional swing provides the sensory input children need to calm and organise. It also encourages movement and exercise. As children climb in, stretch out and move around inside the swing, they develop body awareness, balance, motor planning and spatial skills. The stretchy, heavy-duty fabric provides sensory pressure all over and creates a fun, private space to bounce, swing, spin or just lie motionless while enjoying the movement.
    • These swings can be used when sitting, standing or lying down
    • Ideal for all children, including those with low muscle tone, autism, sensory processing disorder and hyperactivity.
    Both swings hang 150cm long (without someone in it), with a 120cm span. The swings come with a carabiner attachment as well as a swivel attachment. The addition of the swivel attachment allows rotatory movement as well as linear movement. Both attachments are approved to hold 300kg. The single lycra swing option is approved to support up to 80kg and the double lycra option is approved to support up to 150kg. They look the same, just the double option has four heavy weight lycra layers rather than two. The swivel attachment is also pictured. We recommend the double layer option for anyone over 40kg as a general guide. We also recommend approximately 2 metres of suspension height to allow for the swing to drop with the weight of the child and to leave space underneath the swing.

    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    A practical and information new resource by Sally McNamara, Occupational Therapist

    The Sensory Support Flip-Book Guide has been created for anyone who wants to find out more about the sensory preferences and needs of someone they know- or perhaps learn more about themselves. It is particularly relevant for individuals who are more easily 'over-stimulated' or 'under-stimulated' by certain sensations, and can become dysregulated as a result. 

    It has been written as a guide for parents or teachers of children who want to provide the optimal conditions for learning, development and task engagement for an individual (or individuals) that they know.
    The book can also be used as a tool for therapists to guide basic assessment, education, treatment and support of individuals in their care. The flip-card style allows for easy identification of sensory needs and preferences so that the relevant strategies can then be put in place to support that person as required.

  • Tangle Therapy

    $18.50
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    Tangle Therapy consists of the classic inter-connected twistable 'tangle' pieces with larger, latex-free rubber coated pieces with distinctive raised tactile nodules to provide a sensory-calming, tactile experience. It encourages repetitive movement patterns which are good, both for fine motor skills, range of motion and strength, as well as the calming sensory aspect. Many people have found children (and adults) with ASD or a sensory processing disorder were calmer and better able to focus when fidgeting with a tangle due to the repetitive movements and tactile input. They are an ideal quiet fidget for at school or when out.

    Made of ABS plastic covered with a soft (latex free) rubberised material. Comes in one colour combination - Blue/Purple/Green. 

    Please note: Choking Hazard. Contains small parts.

  • Time Timers


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    The Time Timer enables children to see how much time is left without having to know how to tell the time. The Timers have clear, distinctive colours, large dial numbers, and an ultra-quiet quartz movement. These features make the Time Timers perfect for students with difficulties maintaining concentration on tasks, and persisting with tasks. This can be applicable for children with sensory processing issues, ADD, ADHD, autism, etc. They can be used at home, within therapy sessions, and at school, and for both individuals and groups of children. With the Time Timer, the clear visual feedback helps children better understand the passage of time and can monitor their own activities.  This improves their confidence and gives them organised time periods which can reduce anxiety. Children know how much longer they need to persist with a task!

    Time Timers can also be used in the following situations:
    • Timing activity sessions and specific exercises
    • Self-monitoring
    • Overseeing speech, hearing and vision therapies
    • Memory prompting for medications, appointments, etc.
    You can use the visual cue only, or you can add sound with the clear "beep-beep" sound to signal the end of a time segment. Operates on one "AA" battery (not included). The time disc may be moved manually in either direction and can be set at any point on the face.
     
    Time Timer 8cm: The small size and durable lightweight construction make it simple to carry for easy accessibility. During use, a clear cover protects the time face or flips open to serve as a stand.
     
    Time Timer 20cm and 30cm: These timers are designed to be freestanding or wall mounted for classroom and group activities. The large size and bold numerals make these timers easier to read for visually impaired users.
      

    These Time Timers are a valuable resource for every classroom to assist with anxiety levels, help with transitioning and for students to develop awareness about the passage of time.

  • Weighted Lap Bag 2.5kg

    $49.50
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    Weighted lap bags are a very practical way to provide children with calming deep pressure sensory input in the classroom environment. They can be used to help children maintain their concentration during mat time as well as at the desk for written work. These lap bags are filled with poly pellets and are made in cordoroy with segregated sections to ensure even weight distribution. Poly pellet lap bags can be washed in the washing machine. We also have the Animal Lap Bags for another weighted option.

    Please send us an accompanying email when ordering to advise us of your colour choice - navy blue, royal blue, red or green.

    Available in 1.5kg and 2.5kg and now XL 3kg weights. As a general guideline we tend to advise 1.5kg for under 6 years and 2.5kg for over 6 years, however it really depends on the sensory processing needs of the child. If your child is actively seeking deep pressure sensory input (as opposed to just being calmed by applying deep pressure input), then we recommend the heavier weight.

  • Z Grabber


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.

    Get the best of both worlds with ARK's Z Grabber™ - an innovative oral motor tool that combines the benefits of both the Z Vibe and the Grabber. Enjoy all the versatility of the Z-Vibe® and its many interchangeable tips plus the added bonus of a chewable "Grabber" loop attached to the plastic handle. For children who crave vibration and sensory stimulation from the Z Vibe®, use the Z Grabber™ to transition them into working on biting and chewing skills with the textured tip and chewable loop. For children who enjoy tactile input from the Grabbers, use the Z Grabber™ for added sensory input and to transition them into using the various tips of the Z Vibe® to work on speech and feeding skills. The loop can also be used as a handle for added convenience. 
    Why Vibration?
    Most people are either auditory or visual learners. Sometimes, however, these two senses are not enough, and we must look to other options, such as the sense of touch. Speech-Language Pathologists have been trained to use tactile input to teach individuals how to lateralize their tongue, elevate their tongue tip, make a tongue bowl, close their lips, learn a rotary chew, position the articulators for sound production, and various other oral motor skills. The Z-Grabber™ is a tool to help therapists work on these skills in and around the mouth. It can always be used in the off position without vibration. Or, it can be turned on for additional sensory input with its smooth, gentle vibrations. Vibration provides a new level of sensory stimulation to increase awareness and to draw more acute attention to the articulators. Many individuals also find vibration to be calming and soothing.
     

    The Z-Grabber™ is sold with an extra large bite'n'chew tip. All tips for the Z-Vibe are also compatible with the Z-Grabber. We have included the option to add the brush tips at a discounted price as this is great help for children with hypersensitivity making tooth brushing traumatic. Battery included (this is a special Z Vibe battery not sold in stores).

    MADE in the USA out of medical grade, FDA compliant materials that contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times. When changing tips and/or the battery, please use caution as the unit contains small parts that pose a choking hazard.
