Tools to help manage ADHD symptoms: Fidget toys

ADHD children and adults alike fidget for a reason. Movement – such as through fidgeting – essentially helps your brain focus a little bit better by stimulating the pre-frontal cortex.

Remember those students who used to get in trouble for doodling or chewing on their pen in class (or perhaps that was you?) – some of them may have actually been using this “movement” as a way to help them better focus.

This is where “fidget toys” come in: fidget toys are intended to help stimulate movement and work with the urge to fidget, rather than against it, in a controlled way. For an example, check out this cool new fidget toy called Squizits.
