Why use a weighted lap pad? Is your child a wiggle worm? Does your child have difficulty staying put in a chair? Does it seem as if the chair has springs on the seat because your child always jumps right off? Innate hyperactivity and attention difficulties keep children with ADHD and Autism out of their chairs and on the move. These children are unable to adequately sense the chair against their bodies. Therefore, they do not feel properly grounded. Instead, they feel extremely insecure. The use of a weighted lap pad will help your child feel the deep pressure of the chair or seating surface and want to stay still. Some children enjoy the lap pad on their chest or back when going to sleep. This product is even more effective when used in combination with a Move n Sit or Disc O Sit inflatable seat cushion. Lap pad measures 15" X 12" and weighs 3 lbs. Product does contain poly pellets as a weighting agent and should not be used as an oral device. If product is ripped or shows any sign of damage, it should be discarded immediately as it will pose a choking hazard for small children.
