Have you considered fidget toys to help your child focus more during online learning? I suggest trying these focusing toys help you or your child give more attention to online classes.

And yes, both children and adults can use fidget and sensory toys, in particular, learners with ADHD, OCD, autism, sensory processing disorder, or high anxiety levels.

These toys can help promote attention and reduce stress.

That being said, my own daughter and husband both have ADHD find fidget toys totally distracting.

Conversely, my friend’s son relies on them daily to help him pay better attention to his classes.

Would a fidget or sensory toy be calming any of your kids, helping them pay attention to their online school?

It’s worth a try!

Here are some of the best recommendations that work for many kids including my friend’s son. (Taken directly from his desk!)
