This kit includes 10 fidgets to provide auditory sensory input. Fidgets providing input can promote a calm state during periods of uneasiness, frustration, or anxiety. Fidgets are manipulatives meant for individuals to play with to keep hands busy and minds focused. Research has proven that when given a fidget to handle, children and adults alike are able to focus better on what they are hearing. The use of fidgets is also a good strategy to use with individuals who are stemming and need to be distracted by a more appropriate use of their hands.
This set of fidgets was designed for individuals who respond well to auditory input for calming and self-regulation.
