About

We live to serve those with a need to chew & pride ourselves on helping you find the right chew for your needs.

Our Vision

At Chewigem we see a world where sensory seekers are accepted and embraced. Our vision of inclusion allows those using discreet sensory tools to become fully immersed in the world while dissolving the differences that currently exist.  We are a supportive, worldwide community of like-minded people who offer value, experience, trust and encouragement. A community that feels like you belong … a community that feels like coming home.  We believe that living with a SPD diagnosis does not mean living in isolation or alienation.  Living with SPD makes us uniquely us!  We recognize this is not always easy.  Our goal here at Chewigem is to support your sensory journey, include you in the conversation, and bring about a positive change of perception.  Spread the word that change is coming and being different is exceptional.

Our Products

The road to Chewigem begin in 2010, when our sister company launched as a mom/baby product line.  We quickly realized the value of offering our discreet products to those in the sensory world that had a need to chew.  As parents to kids that have multiple diagnoses, offering products that were fun (yet functional), safe and discreet were of utmost importance to us.   We now have years of experience, designing, adapting and creating a range of chewing, fidget and sensory aids for children, teens, and adults. We strive to offer products that can benefit most every type of chewer and we continue to work on developing further innovative solutions. Being a global company, we have served hundreds of thousands of people with a need to chew and continue to expand our offerings into other countries. Our global team is made up of people who have a personal connection to the SPD world, whether as a family member, educator or clinical practitioner.

Here at Chewigem, we believe that selling products is just one piece of the sensory solution. Our membership-based community allows us to connect like-minded individuals for support, educational content and field expert interviews, thereby providing a more comprehensive approach for the need to chew.  If you want to know more about our program read  here.
