OT Activity of the Day:
The Foot Fidget
Target Age Range: 5 and up
Another great product that I discovered at AOTA was The Foot Fidget! This amazing product can be purchased and attached to your child's desk at school. The device can be manipulated and adjusted to allow your child to stand or sit while using the fidget.
I like this classroom strategy for a lot of reasons, but I specifically like that it's quiet. One big complaint I often hear from teachers who are using therapy bands on the child's desk/chair is that they can make a lot of noise. The Foot Fidget eliminates that complaint. So if your child likes to fidget in their chair at school, give the Foot Fidget a try!
