Homeschooling during lockdown?
You might be homeschooling a child or possibly a parent supporting your child through countless online classes? No matter what your situation is we are all looking for something to comfort, relax and distract us.
Children can feel the squares during online calls whilst listening to their teachers to maintain and stimulate their listening and concentration when doing activities and tasks which need focus and can be adapted into all parts of homeschooling. In a research project carried out by MBA in order to use our Library Squares to support homeschooling, results found that over 70% of users found their concentration improved and children were less likely to be distracted.
Impressions were also documented as:
“I keep picking it up”, “I instantly fiddled with it”, “Loved the unicorn one, like the feel of the others”.
"Used the prickly tile during a presentation that I had to give. I found it a distraction from the nerves of presenting. It took my mind away from the fear of stuttering. It worked and I felt incredibly relaxed whilst carrying out the presentation".
"Given one to my youngest child during the homeschooling to try and focus him and keep him still. I found the days where he had the tile to ‘fiddle’ with his concentration improved somewhat and he was less inclined to get up out of his chair"
Adapting Library Squares into your homeschooling routine during this lockdown is a great way for you and your child to find ways to deal with the challenges that arise when homeschooling, finding a simple solution to mitigating anxiety, concentration, and opening up to sensory feelings.
