Compression and the need to fidget is a common trait for those with sensory processing disorders, such as ASD and ADHD. Our weighted lap pads and weighted blankets for kids provide a solution for both of these issues in and outside the classroom.
The weight from the blanket provides the compression that is craved, while the weighted poly pellets act as a fidget for the user. The beads can be manipulated through the soft fabric with ample room for movement. Both sensations help to enhance performance with cognitive tasks, for longer periods of time...making the weighted lap pad ideal for the classroom and homework time.
Encourage fidgeting! Research shows that it may create alertness. Read up: Fidget :)
