Dressing, Teeth and Hair

Do you know about 'reverse chaining'?! Its a fancy term for teaching kids a new skill backwards. It is the best technique for teaching dressing skills. Reverse chaining is when you teach your child to put on his/her socks by putting their foot in the sock and pulling the sock up to the ankle, then the child finishes the last bit. Success, yeh!! Next time you pull the sock up to the mid-foot, and the child pulls the rest of the way. Next time you just do the front of the foot, he/she does the rest. Next time you give then the prepared sock, etc Yeh!! this principal can be applied to many things, not just dressing. You can practice with the following items! We also have lots of things to help children cope with the sensory processing aspects of self care- so many children struggle with teeth and hair. The items below can help!

  • Ark Chew Dude


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


    ARK's Chew Dude™ is a chewable figure necklace that measures about 3.8cm at the widest part and 6.3cm tall.  The main torso is just under 1.3cm thick.  It's a great option for chewing with your front teeth (for back molar chewing, see other more slender ARK chews).  Use it as a safe alternative to chewing on pencils, shirts, fingers, etc. and to help calm, focus, and self-regulate.

    Like all other ARK chewelry it's available in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:

    • Standard = the softest option (the chewiest level) recommended for mild chewing
    • XT = firmer, for moderate chewing
    • XXT = the most firm, for those who like to chew on fairly firm items

    *Please note:  because of its beefier/bigger shape, each level of the Chew Dude™ will 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" a toughness level and order the Chew Dude™ in standard.

    More details:

    • Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord
    • Colour hues may vary slightly
    • 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
    • The cord measures approximately 90cm in length.
    • If desired, you can shorten the cord by pulling the thread out of the clasp, retying the knot at a shorter length, and then trimming the excess thread.
    • Highly recommended for individuals who have Autism, sensory needs, anxiety, ADHD, etc, or for anyone of any age who needs to chew.
    • Not recommended for aggressive chewing

    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 - direct supervision required.  Recommended for children age 5 years and up.  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 overall, see ARK's Y-Chew XXT.

  • 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)
    2 34 25
    3 42 26
    4 47 27

    Children can hold the Good Vibes Scalp Massager themselves or give it to an adult to apply. It can be applied to the scalp, or to arms, legs or backs.

Children who struggle with hair brushing and hair cuts due to tactile hypersensitivity may find it helpful to use the deep massage before these activities to help de-sensitize their scalp. Other children just find the deep pressure vibration calming and regulating, no matter where it's applied.

    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.
