Lap Pads & Shoulder Wraps

 

Weighted lap pads can be an amazing sensory tool or toy to help improve your child’s attention, focus, or ability to calm down and relax.
They can also improve your child’s body awareness and prevents sensory meltdowns, tantrums and aggression.

Weighted lap pads offer targeted DTP input while seated, which can:

  • Increase time-on-task
  • Increase overall seated positioning

Shoulder wraps are similar to lap pads but placed on the shoulders for sensory input.

Weighted shoulder wraps provide amazing calming deep pressure input that helps the user reach a calm state. The extra pressure placed on the shoulders helps to relax aching joints and soothe tight muscles.

 
 
 

Who would benefit from weighted lap pads?

Children and adults alike are finding weighted lap pads to be helpful in helping them self-regulate. People who benefit from DTP include those diagnosed with:

  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Psychiatric disorders  (mood disorder, depression, anxiety, dementia, post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).

Weighted lap pads are often used in classrooms to provide some sensory input and help students stay seated. Preschool teachers find lap pads most helpful in keeping little bodies in seated positions on the carpet for story time.

Conclusion

Weighted lap pads are sensory tools that promote regulation, calming, and refocusing. When used in combination with a sensory diet plan, these tools are wonderful classroom additions to help children with seated posture and seated attention.
