The daily routine which would have changed since school ended last year will need to alter once again as kids head back to the classroom. For many kids, it will be their first time attending school which will bring about a whole new world of issues to navigate around.
Have a look at some of our back to school products which may help your child adjust to their new surroundings.
One item which may be particularly helpful is the book entitled Arnie and His School Tools: Simple Sensory Solutions To Build Success. This book written by Jennifer Veenendall, a school-based occupational therapist, is useful to introduce elementary students to basic sensory tools used to help kids in classroom settings such as fidgets, chewy pencil toppers and weighted vests.
Lacing shoes can be particularly problematic for little ones and this dual action board has a set of 3 different types of footwear including a hiking boot, football shoe and sneaker to help them with their shoe tying practice. Each shoe can be taken out and used individually.
As parents, we know there are going to be issues we have to face this school year and the best thing we can do is to stay as organised and as prepared as we can to deal with each and every concern as they arise.
