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 lap pad is 3-D in nature with the bear being raised from the surface. The raised bear provides the child something for his or her hands to explore during use and provides instant calming.
