Does your child feel the need to chew on clothes or anything they can get their teeth onto?
The most common reasons can be ●Teething
●Stress and/or anxiety
●Autism and/or sensory processing disorder (SPD)
Chewing provides proprioceptive input to the jaw that can help calm the nervous system when overstimulated. It’s similar to how some people might bite their fingernails when they’re nervous, or pace back and forth, do deep breathing, tap their foot, etc. It also harkens back to how mouthing/chewing/sucking is a self-soothing technique when we’re babies.
Chewing can also help kids focus when they need to concentrate or block out distractions or stressors in their environment.
