Yup, my boy has a necklace. Nope, he is not sporting bling. His Occupational Therapist (OT) gave him a necklace made out of coiled plastic similar to a phone cord. It is to chew on instead of his shirts. When I gave him one a couple of years ago, along with other stuff to chew on, he would not even try them. A few years and someone else to give him one, and now he LOVES it. I am SOOOO glad, and plan to order a couple more. Maybe now his shirts will last more than 4 wearings. Our thrift store went up in price and now kids shirts are $1 instead of a quarter. I didn't mind so much when he ate through six or eight shirts a month at a quarter apiece. I DO mind when they cost a dollar though. Maybe other kids with sensory problems here will be open to things you tried a couple of years ago. It cannot hurt to try! Meanwhile, I will just bask in the leisure of not having to scrounge up eight shirts a month for my kid to eat.
