This fidget lap quilt has many uses and many names. The sensory fiddle items are for calming, comforting, stimulating, occupying and distracting for people who have dementia, Alzheimer’s or other sensory issues. On top of this they also help maintain fine motor skills and can give the person a meaningful activity to engage in. They can occupy the person for a long time, keep their hands busy and settle them when they are restless. The lap blankets are also good for people with anxiety and autism.
This blanket has lots of activities including zips, buttons, pockets and poppers. It also has some tactile elements which can help calm a person.
The blanket has a medium weight tweed backing to give a bit of weight which helps calm and soothe and also provides another texture.
Can be machine washed inside a pillow case on a cool wash.
Although every care has been given to attaching the elements this quilt would not be suitable for a very young child due to the small parts.
