They are under oral motor and then Chewies.  I have seen them other places but the price is about the same everywhere I looked online.  There are lots of kinds depending on your child's chew habits.  I had to try a few before I found one that my son would consistently use.  Good luck!

Google.com

You can find them online everywhere. They are pretty cheap too.

Though I've only ever heard them called chew tubes.

Amazon has a lot and some are flavored. But, I had the flavored chew stix for my son and the flavors we had were orange, mint, chocolate and lemon. The only one with a strong or decent flavor was the mint. The others were too faint to even be called flavor. It was more like a scent. But, he did chew them so I suppose they worked. Also, they have different textures on them. They are in the shape of an x. So, if your kid also need texture help these are good for that.

I think I'm going to order him a robot pendant one. I think it will be easier to hide the chewing at school with it. I am thinking about a textured one to keep under his pillow since he chews a lot during the night.

STRAWS!!!!!!!!! 100 for a buck at walmart!! Unless he will chew into pieces and swallow then get a chew stick. I'd say at fun and function but Gloria1025 stole my answer lol
