Fun and function and just like a hand on your shoulder, the pair of Wrap Around Weighted Sashes provide the wearer a little extra pressure on the body that can increase attention span.
Research has consistently shown pressure on the skin and extra work for the joints and muscles provide a calming and focusing effect for kids who tend to fidget.Worn for up to 30 minutes at a time, Wrap Arounds can help improve attention during learning times such as circle time, independent work time and meal time.
This is an amazing idea for adding weight and giving older kids and tweens a place to store their ‘stuff.’ It's easy to slip on and just as easy to sling over one shoulder, but still gives the benefit of additional weight.”

Wrap Arounds have an elastic band to which a fidget object may be attached. Occupational therapists often suggest the use of a hand held fidget object to encourage focus and to keep hands to oneself. A fidget object can be attached to the elastic band so when the child lets go of the object it stays at their side ready for the next time they need to fidget.
Children who move and fidget a lot are often on the receiving end of statements such as "don't do this" or "stop that". Using positive statements such as "get your Wrap Arounds" or "use your fidget" instead of negative statements such as "stop moving" or "don't touch so-and-so" gives opportunity for positive interaction. This can help children feel they are part of a solution and not part of a problem.
Wrap Arounds are great for toddlers through Kindergarten-aged children. They have been found to be especially helpful during meal times and sit and listen times. These can be used along with the Lapper when a child needs higher intensity weighted input to help them stay in one place and focus.
Wrap Arounds work well for any fidgety kid but are particularly effective if your child struggles with the effects of any of the following difficulties or disorders: anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) or Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
Maximum wearing time recommendation is 15 - 30 minutes per occasion. Multiple occasions may be appropriate throughout the day and should be used under the supervision of an adult.
