A Bit of Sensory Input that Goes a Long “Weigh”
Help your child improve sensory processing and proprioception with this Adjustable Pediatric Ankle Weight Set. A great addition to motor planning activities, these weights also provide the heavy work that many kids crave. The ankle weights are adjustable in size and can hold up to 2 lbs. of total weight (1 lb. per ankle). Adjust the weight by removing or inserting the weight bars into the appropriate slots. A D-ring closure ensures a snug fit and a padded interior makes sure that the weights fit snugly to most ankles.
- Provides proprioceptive input at home or school
- For kids with sensory processing disorder or autism
- Ages 4-11
Ideas for Use
Encourage your kids to use them while walking, stepping or doing an obstacle course for improvements in coordination and sensory processing. Have a child on the spectrum put one on each ankle before heading out the door for school, camp or an activity.
