Have you ever found yourself twiddling with perhaps blue tack , a paper clip or even perhaps doodling on some paper . It goes beyond being bored , it actually helps you relax and focus on the task in hand . This is why autism fidget toys are so very important both at home and in the classroom. These Tangle toys are just one fidget toy that is brilliant , there are many different types starting from as little as £3 and I think it's the best £3 you'll ever spend.I can confirm it's the best £3 ( prices do vary from site to site ) I have spent( I don't mind spending my own money but you do what you do because you love the job you do. My job is as a one to one autism teaching assistant )
They are great for help in new social situations and in learning tasks , it helps induce a relaxed mindset, fiddle and fidget toys deliberatly use kinasethic technology to engage both parts (the left and right areas) of your child's brain. Thefore the fidget aid focuses your child's mind on an activity. This keeps busy fingers occupied and stops anxious behaviour taking over.
Disclosure as you've gathered I've brought this myself , if you root round the Internet you'll find it cheaper always the way . There are many different types of Tangle out there so I do recommend you do some research.
