SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS
WEIGHTED AIDS Weighted aids are specialist equipment in the therapy and rehabilitation of pe- ople with sensory integration disorders. While used, they gently pressthe body and stimulate the vestibular-proprioceptive system responsible for the ‚deep to- uch’. Receptors in this system are found in muscles and tendons and they provide information about the orientation of our limbs in space. According to individual needs, stimulation of proprioceptors relaxes, calms down, raises the awareness of one’s body, improves focus and concentration, limits self-stimulation and helps eliminate fear, anxiety or insecurity. The aids for sensory integration are made of fabrics distinguished for colours, design and quality. They are filled with safe glass bead granulate whose amount and weight depends on the user’s weight and height.
