Weighted Lap Blankets

DS is worried because his new teacher has said the kids aren't allowed to 'swing on their chairs'

Do you think getting him a weighted lap blanket might stop this?

Or do you think it's just a bad habit he can perfectly well control? I don't know.......

Yes, he has a wobble cushion. And it does help.

then I'd deffinately give it a go indigoBell and let me know as i might get one for DS if it helps, they have not complained at school (SS) so im sure they are used to it, but it would be good at home while hes watching tv or on computer ,as we speak hes doing my nugget in (trying tot to get aggravated as he continually swings round in circles) if I chage for an ordinary chair he keeps tipping backwards instead

I am not sure Indigo as with my DS the weight on his lap doesnt do anything and he still fidgets. He has to have a blanket wrapped round him up to his neck for him to stay reasonably still. I havent tried a wobble cushion though.

ds does have a special heavy blanket if hes really into a video game he wraps round himself comppletely but its too hot atm he still fidgets with the blanket itself though.
