Abilitations set of three fidget balls provides sensory input to help improve focus and concentration, and is squeezable for strengthening hands. Each fidget is filled with white snowballs, two penguins, and a clear ice cube for visual and tactile feedback, and has a key chain for attaching to a backpack, purse, or belt loop. The toys have a durable plastic exterior and a silicone gel filling. Silicone is a nonreactive and flexible polymer that is resistant to high temperatures. The fidgets are latex free for people with latex allergies, and measure 2-3/4”/7.0cm in diameter. The toy has a material data safety sheet (MSDS) for product information, and may be suitable for some children on the autism spectrum and for special needs, preschool, and early childhood learning environments.
Special needs products are designed to help improve sensory processing, positioning and mobility, fine motor, and language and communication skills for students with learning challenges. Fine motor products can help individuals improve fine motor skills (hand dexterity), eye-hand coordination, handwriting, self-help skills, such as dressing, and focus and concentration.
