  • Make drinking easier for those with oral motor difficulties

    The Ark Premium One Way Valve ensures that fluid always stays at the top of the straw. Less effort is required for each sip whilst also reducing the amount of air ingested when drinking. Users tend to experience less coughing while consuming more fluids. 

    This stainless steel valve is easy to take apart, clean, and put back together.

    Highly recommended for individuals with oral motor difficulties, those with a weak suck or individuals that have problems generating and maintaining suction.

    Just press the tapered end of the valve into the bottom of a straw and you're ready to drink. 

    Ark Premium One Way Valve Features:

    • Medical grade stainless steel
    • Sold individually
    • Compatible with regular straws (.25” diameter)

My son loves his Connetix bought from Starfish. The Connectix helps him with his imagination and hand eye co-ordination.

I love using your products with my NDIS client. I especially find the Coko Alphabet Bricks easy to use and so helpful in promoting literacy learning skills with my client. They also double up as a great playtime activity with my 7 year old granddaughter where we see how many words we can make out of a select few...

Sending a big thank you to the lovely team at Starfish store. I’m located in Melbourne and the lady I spoke to on the phone was more then happy to give her advice regarding noise canceling ear muffs.

My daughter is a sensory seeker and seeks oral feedback and stimulation, we’ve purchased the Ark Z Vibe Grabber and instantly my daughter was getting the input she was seeking. The staff at Starfish are extremely helpful and the prompt service and delivery is always appreciated.

We purchased the Lycra swing from Starfish. It’s great quality (thick Lycra), stretchy yet firm, and has enough material for the kids to wrap around themselves. It also takes a lot of weight so can be used for years to come. Definitely great value for money.

My 5 year old nonverbal ASD was overstimulated, we tried our usual deep pressure cuddles and reassurance however it wasn't working. We decided to give the turtle a go, and he loves it he listened to the waves and quickly calmed to the blue wave over our roof within a minute. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I write this...

Absolutely love the Whoozit Water Mat. We got it today and Liam, who doesn’t normally like water, played with it for over half an hour with a huge smile.

We played with the Connetix tiles all afternoon with no TV on (big plus in our house). The best part about it was, I am not the best at actively playing with her and I actually played with her for a decent hour or two because I find them so fascinating! Win win!

I received my LCD writing tablet and I am thrilled. So far it’s been invaluable next to my computer to write things down if needed without wasting or looking for paper. I will take it in my bag wherever I go! Thanks so much Starfish!
