Beyond Fidget Spinners

To say that fidget spinners are popular is an understatement.  In the course of researching this blog, we hopped onto YouTube and entered “fidget spinners” in the search bar. The result was 10,800,000 videos on the topic that range from “Fidget Spinner Tricks with a Professional Fidgeter” to “Bad Kids Hypnotize Mommy with Fidget Spinner”.  A recent edition of the online publication of Scientific American outlines the findings of a study as to the practical application of fidget items for adults.

In the special needs arena, we have long known that stress balls and other fidget devices serve as tools to help children on the autism spectrum and those who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, known as ADHD as well as others with sensory differences.

The Washington Post reported earlier this summer that some schools are now imposing  an outright ban on fidget devices, claiming distraction in the school rooms.

Does your school have a policy?  What do you think?  Please share your experiences with our special ed team at [email protected]

The next time you are in our Moorestown office, we will be happy to give you an MPAD stress ball as pictured alongside this blog.  We always keep a supply on hand to share with our friends.

i felt as if she was looking
out for us like family

We closed our house sale yesterday with Melanie Levan. She was so professional, knowledgeable and great to work with. I felt as if she was looking out for us like family. I highly recommend her.
