Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Aug 7, 2020

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!

Over the years, we have written several blogs on different available fidgets for individuals with sensory issues, autism, ADHD, anxiety, and more.  If you're searching for a discreet, soothing option, check out Calm Strips!

In sum, Calm Strips are sensory adhesives that you can stick to your phone, laptop, journal, desk, wherever!  According to the product's website, the strips are made from a "thin, but extremely hardy and durable vinyl.  Crafted to help soothe anxiety and fidgeting by grounding you in a calming scene and giving you a gentle, but textured, surface as a stimulus."

Features of Calm Strips include:

Ideal for both children and adults seeking a discreet calming product
Users simply rub their fingers on the textured strip whenever they need to fidget and/or relax
Strips can adhere to many surfaces like desks, laptops, phones, and more
Made out of a durable, reusable adhesive so you can remove and reuse them
