    the best is gum...sugarless of course,the chewing will keep them from chewing on sleeves and shirts etc. talk to the teachers and ask if they can be allowed as part of their therapy to chew gum. I use full sticks of gum and cut them in thirds that way they last longer. After about 3 months my little one comes to me and says I think I need to chew some gum....he chews the gum and not his sleeves and by the time he swallows it he has moved on from whatever had stressed him
