 Take a bite out of feeding therapy with the Right Bit.  For individuals with feeding issues, the ability to visually judge food and take an appropriately sized bite can be a difficult task.  Invented by Jaci Dale, MS, CCC-SLP and developed by ARK Therapeutic, the Right Bite solves this problem by allowing you to present a prescribed, manageable amount of food to the individual.  Simply slide a cookie, cracker, cucumber slice, or the like into the opening until it protrudes from the semi-circle opening.  Then offer the Right Bite to the individual and instruct him/her to "take a bite."  Since only a portion of the food is presented at a time, the Right Bite encourages appropriate bite sizes, prevents mouth stuffing, and paces the rate of eating to allow for adequate chewing time.  

For jaw grading and control, use food items of various thicknesses and practice gauging how far to open the mouth for each food item.  No matter what your goal is, the Right Bite eliminates the risk of the therapist/caregiver being bitten during feeding therapy.  Furthermore, being presented with a prescribed bite decreases the visual sensory concerns that some individuals may have with large pieces of food.  

The Right Bite is recommended for individuals of all ages.  

The product measures roughly 4 x 2 inches with a bite opening of 1.4 x .6 inches.  

Dishwasher-safe.

This product is made in the USA out of medical grade, FDA compliant materials that contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
