    The Sensory Hugs Weighted Lap Pad is designed to hold up to 4 weight strips. The weight strips are included and allow the therapist/parent to choose the amount of weight to be used. Great for kids who can't sit still. Therapist may use from 1 to 4 strips. Lap pads are highly durable and washable. All weights are made from steel shot. Lead and latex free.

    The concept of the weighted lap pad is based on the sensory integration therapy technique of deep pressure. Weighted pressure is often used to assist the child to self-calm and relax so that sensory stimulus can be processed. The use of a weighted lap pad provides the child with unconscious information from the muscles and joints.

    Children who are easily distracted, hyperactive and lacking in concentration respond positively to the "hugging" sensation a weighted lap pad provides. Therapists have found that adding additional weights to the lap may also assist with reflex maturity, body position awareness and coordination, balance, eye/hand coordination, spatial perception and hearing and speaking skills. Because of these anecdotal outcomes, many therapists working with children are recommending the use of a weighted lap pad.
