Fidget Toys: Liquid Calm
There is a science behind fidget toys! They can improve performance in memory tests, boost attention and lower anxiety. This might be because fidgeting with them lowers the level of stress hormones that interfere with learning.
Not every child is the same. Try a few different fidget toys to see which type they respond to best. Have your child experiment with each toy while waiting for something, or when they need to focus, or calm themselves. Bring fidget toys out with you while going on outings, especially if you are anticipating challenging behaviour. Be proactive and plan ahead.
