Everyone fidgets to some extent. Why do we do this? Research shows that engaging in a mindless activity such as clicking a pen or chewing on gum can help us stay focused on our tasks longer and more intensely.
Children do this too, particularly kids with special needs. To a child with a sensory integration or attention deficit disorder, a calming classroom fidget to hold, twirl or chew on can provide calm relaxation and help children focus on the task at hand.
Our selection of fun fidgets are designed for kids and adults. Our calming fidgets include Boinks, tubes, balls, putty and more. Some fidgets are soft and bendy, while others are designed to provide puzzles to solve. Your child might prefer something super squishy or gravitate toward spiky toys instead.
If your child or teen loves to chew to get the relaxation of stimulation he or she craves, there are plenty of tools in our repertoire. From super chewy tubes to more discreet necklaces or bracelets, we have something to fulfil everyone’s chewing needs.
Not sure what’s right for your child? Let us help. We specialize in special needs education and products because we have special needs kids ourselves. Contact us today!
