Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
Fun and Function is a company offering hundreds of tools to
help individuals focus, regulate their senses, and more. One
of their more recent additions is the Fidget Backpack!
The Fidget Backpack is a dream backpack for children who love
to fidget. The bag works double duty, "engaging fidgety
fingers with sensory activities while keeping schoolwork
organized." Exterior coils, webbing, toggles, and textured
patches help children satisfy sensory needs while waiting for the
bus or riding to and from school.
Features of the Fidget Backpack include:
- Supports tactile exploration
- Helps calm and channel anxiety
- For ages 3-8
- And much, much more
