Theraputty Extra Firm Black 3oz is an ideal tool often recommended by OT's to increase range of motion, muscle tone and fine motor.
There are varying levels of resistance available for sensory fun, stimulation games and hand strengthening exercises. It can be squeezed, stretched, moulded and bounced.
Theraputty can be a useful distraction or calming tool for those with ADHD, ASD, SPD. Please choose carefully as we cannot exchange theraputty that has been used.
Theraputty comes in various levels of resistance.
Yellow = X soft, Red = soft, Green = medium, Blue = firm, Black = X firm
It is important to use the correct level of resistance, so be sure to consult with your OT, Physiotherapist or other professional for good advice on this. Green theraputty is definitely the most popular (and the most commonly recommended by therapists), given its graded as a "medium" level of resistance.
Bleed-proof, nontoxic, non-oily
Hair: Use baby oil, a generous amount of hair conditioner with warm water. Massage around the scalp and where the theraputty is in the hair. Gently comb through. Once removed, wash with shampoo.
Fabric/Carpet: Scrape off excess. Spray with WD-40 and let sit for a few minutes. Respray. Wipe off the stain with cotton balls. Then use sponge/cloth dampened with dish soap to wipe remaining residue.
Definately recommend this for fidgeters, my 6 year old and my 7 year old both rock on this while watching TV or reading
Easy to use and really good for relieving muscle tension.
My daughter loves this toothbrush! She finds brushing her teeth so much easier now.
This is super cool and great for focus when needing to ground yourself. Has been helpful for anxiety and panic attacks where you can focus on the weight and feel of it in your hands. Also good fidget resource.
Great little puzzle to keep hands busy. Easy to carry and calm ADHD down in stressful situations
This goes with the Hart Scooter Board, which is lots of fun. Using the paddle means that nobody needs to push you! You can ride the board on your own without a pole but the pole makes it easier, and more enjoyable. Very sturdy pole, as is to be expected with any HART product. Highly recommend getting two boards so that you can have races.
This is a great product. Large velcro strips on either side hold it down to the carpet, quite firmly. It provides a nice level of compression (big smiles when my son hops into it!), and is a special place to read a book, just lie down and dream or listen to music. This has the potential to become a portable cosy space to take with you to unfamiliar places, especially when teamed with favourite books, a pair of earmuffs (if noise is an issue), a special toy, relaxing music etc. It comes in a sturdy canvas bag and there is also a link to a website that offers a downloadable book with ideas on many different ways to use this product. I'm a fan!
These are a nice pair of earmuffs in a plain colour. Really comfy padded top part that covers your head, they fold up quite small when you're not using them. Effective.
This is a nice quiet time activity. A great little portable puzzle with an option to do either a black and white or colour puzzle card.
I really like this compression sheet. Pretty easy to put on a mattress - it fits like a sock without a toe! Gives a really nice level of compression, nice and stretchy, but not too firm. My son instantly smiles when he hops into it.
My son loves the 'graffiti' design on these earmuffs. They're also very comfortable for him. Easily adjustable. Quite plush. Blocks a substantial amount of noise apparently. I can wholeheartedly recommend.
These 1 to 10 dice are fantastic for quick number recognition fun and lots more. Very useful classroom equipment for quick prep number games.
We found this product wonderful with assisting our son to calm. The whistle has a gentle tone that isn’t irritating to others.
These earmuffs were perfect for the monster trucks. They must have been comfy as my 2 and 6 year old kept them on for the whole 3 hours, size is great fit my two year old as well as me.
Just what we needed to minimise distractions in the classroom
