On our Social Media over the past month we’ve had segments from a conversation we’ve had with Dr. Liz Sternberg. We talked to other parents who had used it and thought it was really helping their kids and so we wanted to know more. First, from the website:
The focus fidget concept was initially created by my son, Jack, with my assistance as part of a school invention project to solve a problem. The problem Jack chose “|to solve” was to help kids stay alert and focused while learning. Jack has high functioning autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD.
He, like many other kids, finds it challenging to learn when he is required to sit still for prolonged periods of time. Jack is a kinesthetic learner—he learns best when moving his body and feeling his environment. The focus fidget has helped Jack become a more focused learner at school and home. We hope you will enjoy the benefits of the focus fidget too!
The vision of EPS Pediatric Services, LLC, the company that manufactures and retails The Focus Fidget and its related products, is to support individuals with special needs.
