The Tote Around Turtle enables a child to attend and focus. Improvements have been noted in reducing rocking behaviors, maintaining 90 degree hip flexion, decreasing leg wrapping around the chair and reducing the incidence of standing during fine-motor activities.
This turtle is best used under the supervision of an occupational therapist or teacher for 20 minutes at time or as recommended.
Using weight to offer proprioceptive feedback is effective for 'grounding' children with autism, sensory integration disorders and many other neurological challenges.
