Here is some information in detail and short for people who DONT UNDERSTAND - I have 2 of my 4 children who have been diagnosed with ADHD by extended studies from dr with info from teachers to assist. It's different between both of them. These symptoms are right on!
Pencil fidgets - They allow the student to have something to move around in their hands. Students that require such fidgets have a need for sensory stimulation, and fidgets provide that within the classroom setting. I know about 50 kids... and myself who would benefit from these.
Calm Down Spot? Rain Bottle -fill a dry empty bottle with a box of toothpicks. Add rice (uncooked) to the bottle leaving an empty space of about 1 1/2 inches at the top. Seal the lid. As you gently turn the bottle, the rice falls through the toothpicks, sounding like rain.
Calming Sensory Bottles-Fill bottle one-fourth to one-third full with light corn syrup-Add mylar (shiny) confetti in the shape or shapes of your choice-Seal tightly using hot glue if available. Why It Is Calming-Try it and you'll see! The syrup glides down the sides of the bottle very slowly; bringing the confetti right along. No wonder this one is sometimes called a Stress Bottle-This is one of the kids crafts that is great for a child with ADHD. Repinned by SOS Inc. Resources @sostherapy.
SO cool. This bit of brilliance was designed for students with special needs. Each child has his or her own personal space, which can be outfitted with any sensory comforts that the child might need. AWESOME. Also, one or two of these in a library center would be a super-cool semi-private space for any kid.
