Concentration and Attention

Many of the items in the Sensory section are recommended for improving concentration as they enable children to self-regulate and maintain a calm, alert state. Please also have a look under Posture and Seating as these items are also essential for some children in enabling them to concentrate. The items we have included here are more specific to 'top-down' strategies, eg behavioural strategies, for use with helping children to maintain attention and to be organised with their tasks.

  • ADHD Go-To Guide

    $29.95
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    Many books have been written for parents about ADHD but most of them are quite scientific. They can be difficult to navigate, especially if you are a parent with some symptoms of ADHD yourself.

    We choose this book as a go-to guide for parents and teachers, providing up-to-date knowledge in a simple, easy-to-read format. It is filled with information your doctor would like to provide but is often unable to do so in the limited appointment times available. This book also gives a framework and practical tips for how you can manage and advocate for your child in different settings, with or without medication. It summarises evidence to date for medication and alternative therapies, examines commonly held beliefs about ADHD and debunks myths.

    This book has been written by a developmental paediatrician (Desiree Silva) and an ADHD coach (Michele Toner), both of whom are passionate about improving the lives of children with ADHD and their families. They both have over 20 years of experience in the field and recognise the need for this practical guide.

    Therapists, general practitioners and others who have contact with these wonderful children will also benefit from the information in this guide.

  • Alert Programme CD Set

    $39.00
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    The Alert Program® CD is a double CD set. One of the CDs is an introduction to the program with excerpts from the 
    Introductory Booklet (read by the authors). The second CD has fun, playful songs that help children change their levels of alertness at home or school. All songs are kid-tested, therapist/parent/teacher-approved, with titles such as “Slo-Mo,” “Thumb Wrestling,” “Swamp Balomp,” “Hawk,” and “Hokey OT.”
    As children get familiar with the Alert Program®, these songs will help them to self-regulate. For instance, a child might say at bedtime, “My engine is running high. Could we play the ‘Hawk Song’ to help me fall asleep?”

  • All-Band Loops


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.

    Versatile All-Band is a natural rubber resistive material that's wonderful for proprioceptive activities and strengthening activities. Beyond strengthening activities, you can also use it to pull children on scooter boards, and tied around chair legs as a kicker strip for children who seek movement and proprioception….  An excellent item to have in your bag of goodies! 

    All-Band is now also available in 'loops' giving a more extended range of options for activities, exercises and strategies for use (eg it's easier to wrap around chair legs as a kick band for movement seekers). There are two diameters - 23.5cm and 55cm in six different levels of resistance. Most therapists recommend the yellow theraband for use with children. This provides 'soft grade' resistance. We also carry the next 2 grades - green being 'medium' and red being 'firm'. The price is the same.

    All-Band is 99.9% latex allergen free.

    ARK's Basketball Chew Necklace is a sensory slam dunk!  This rounded disc pendant measures about 4.5cm diameter and 12.5mm at the thickest part (in the center of the pendant) - perfect for those who prefer chewing with their pre-molars and/or front teeth (for more slender options that reach the back molars, see other ARK chewelry).  Use this oral sensory solution as a safe alternative to chewing on pencils, shirts, fingers, etc. and to help calm, focus, and self-regulate. This is a firm or super firm/tough option for people who like to chew on firm/fairly rigid items

    Details:

    • Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord
    • Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic
    • Each pendant is medical grade, FDA compliant, and contains NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex
    • The cord measures approximately 92cm in length.
    • If desired, you can shorten the cord by scooting the thread out of the clasp, retying the knot at a shorter length, and then trimming the excess thread.
    • Highly recommended for individuals who have Autism, sensory needs, anxiety, ADHD, etc, or for anyone of any age who needs to chew.

    Caution: This product is not a toy. The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing. Contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard. Not recommended for children under 5 years.  Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible.  Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use.  How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.).  While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly.  Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.

    Caution: This product is not a toy.  The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing.  Contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard - direct supervision required.  Recommended for children age 5 years and up.  Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible.  Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use.  How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.).  While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly.  Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.  For the longest lasting chew tool overall, see ARK's Y-Chew XXT.

    $14.95
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    ARK’s Sensory Bookmark - a cool tactile fidget for home, school, work, or anywhere in between.  As a “bookmark,” it discreetly fits in with the rest of your desk items without specifically standing out as a sensory tool.  Run your fingertips across 4 different textured sections - small bumps, larger bumps, straight lines, and diagonal lines.  The lines have a more mild feel while the bumps have a more pronounced feel for different levels of tactile input.   As an added bonus: the bookmarks are soft and flexible - bend them, twist them, roll them, and fidget away.
    • Designed and made in the USA by ARK Therapeutic
    • Each bookmark measures 15.2cm long and 1.95cm wide
    • Sold in a pack of 3
    • Colours may vary

  • Ark Smiley Face Chew Necklace


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    ARK’s Smiley Face Chew Necklace is sure to put a smile on your face!  The double-sided disc pendant features a big grin smiley on one side (indented) and a cool sunglasses smiley on the other side (raised) for different visual and tactile interest.  At just over 5cm in diameter, it's a great option for those who prefer chewing with their pre-molars and/or front teeth (for more slender options that reach the back molars, see other ARK chewelry).  Use this oral sensory solution as a safe alternative to chewing on pencils, shirts, fingers, etc. and to help calm, focus, and self-regulate.

    We have ARK's Smiley Face comes in 3 color-coded toughness levels: 

    • Dark Blue or Yellow = Standard, this is the softest Smiley option (the chewiest level, but still firm) recommended for mild chewing
    • Lime Green or Hot Pink = XT (firmer), for moderate chewing
    • Blue or Orange = XXT (the most firm), for those who like to chew on fairly firm items.  It's also the longest lasting level for avid chewing.  

    Details:

    • Each pendant is sold individually with its own breakaway necklace cord
    • Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic
    • Each pendant is medical grade, FDA compliant, and contains NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex
    • Each pendant measures approximately 5cm in diameter and .75cm thick.
    • The cord measures approximately 91cm in length.
    • If desired, you can shorten the cord by scooting the thread out of the clasp, retying the knot at a shorter length, and then trimming the excess thread.
    • Highly recommended for individuals who have Autism, sensory needs, anxiety, ADHD, etc, or for anyone of any age who needs to chew.

    **Please note:  because of its wider shape, each toughness level of the Smiley Face may feel tougher than the same toughness level in one of our more slender shapes.  So for example, if you like the Krypto-Bite™ in the middle XT level, you may want to "size down" to the soft level in this wider shape.

    Caution: This product is not a toy. The clasp and cord are not intended for chewing. Contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard. Not recommended for children under 5 years.  Although these chew tools are sturdy and durable, no chew tool is indestructible.  Wear/tear may be expected given the nature of the intended use.  How long they last is typically equal to the amount and intensity of the chewing, as well as other variables (such as jaw strength, stress/anxiety levels, if other sensory strategies are in place, etc.).  While for some people a chew tool will last forever, for others with heavy/aggressive oral needs, they may go through it very quickly.  Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary if the item shows signs of wear and tear.  For the longest lasting chew tool for avid chewing, see ARK's Y-Chew XXT.

  • Ark Spider Bite Necklace


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    ARK’s Spider Bite Chew Necklace provides a safe, wearable, discreet, and cool solution for those who need to chew. A favourite of Spider Man and creepy crawly fans everywhere, the Spider Bite can be used as an oral fidget (or even hand fidget) to help calm, soothe, and self-regulate during times of stress, or to better focus during homework and other activities. These are also excellent for sensory oral motor input, and/or as a safe alternative to chewing/biting on fingers, knuckles, shirts, pencils, etc. The Spider Bite features the same medical grade, resilient material as all of Ark's other chew tools in three different toughness levels.  
       
        Soft (Red) – recommended for mild chewers
        XT (Black) – “Xtra Tough,” recommended for moderate chewers
        XXT (Grey) – “Xtra Xtra Tough,” recommended for avid chewers
     

    Each pendant is sold with its own breakaway necklace cord. The Spider is approx 4.5cm in diameter. Designed, manufactured, and assembled in the USA by ARK Therapeutic, these pendants are constructed out of medical grade, FDA compliant materials that contain NO lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex. Note: This product is not a toy. Although these chew tools are made out of sturdy, medical grade materials, they are not indestructible.

Please supervise at all times and replace if necessary when the item shows signs of wear and tear.

  • Ark's Chewable Pen Toppers


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    Does chewing on pen caps sound familiar?  Made in the USA, ARK's Write-n-Bite™ is the perfect solution.  With a smooth cylindrical design and neutral colours, it looks just like a regular pen cap.  Ark have designed these specifically with adults and older kids in mind as a more discreet way to chew at work, in the office, etc.  

    Each topper comes with a free black ink pen, but they're are also compatible with most #2 pencils (and pens of a similar size with removable caps).  They're hollow on one end to fit on the end of a pen, and solid on the opposite end.  Like all other ARK chews, they're available in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:

    • Standard (light grey) = the softest / chewiest option, recommended for mild chewing
    • XT (black) = XT stands for "Xtra Tough," recommended for moderate chewing
    • XXT (dark grey) = XXT stands for "Xtra Xtra Tough," recommended for those who like the resistance of chewing on fairly firm items

    It's hard to make a 1:1 comparison to regular pen caps as regular pen caps are more hollow and slender, but if you're looking for a replacement that's closest to a regular pen cap, we recommend the middle XT level.

    Each topper is sold individually with it's own black ink pen. Each topper measures about 5.8cm long and 1.1cm in diameter. 

    Please note:  we don't recommend using the chewable pen topper as a cap to cover the ink end of the pen.  Please keep it on the solid back end of the pen (as pictured), away from the ink, as ink should not be near the mouth (or near something that will go in the mouth).

  • Bouncy Bands


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.

    For children who find it difficult to stay seated for long periods of time, Bouncy Bands for Chairs are designed to allow them to wiggle while they work!    

    For active, movement seeking children, the Bouncy Bands can provide the input that they need to stay focused and productive while seated.  Additionally, children who feel anxious when working, may enjoy being able to stretch their legs as a means to release their anxiety while they work. Those children who's feet don't touch the floor can use the bands as a foot rest instead of having them dangling all day.   
     
    Made from really heavy duty, latex-free rubber with loops at each end to fit around the included support pipes.  

    Available in regular and wide widths:

    Regular = The bands will stretch to fit chairs that have a distance from 33-44 cm between the chair legs.
    Wide = The bands will stretch to fit chairs that have a distance from 43-60 cm between the chair legs.  

    Please Note: Chair legs need to be less than 3.6cm diameter.

    We've now added 'Band Only' which is just the regular size heavy duty Bouncy Band without the support pipes. This is an option for the square-leg chairs as the support pipes don't fit over these. You can make 'tennis-ball socks' to prevent the bands slipping down to the floor, but mostly they don't tend to move anyway.

    To make tennis ball socks:
    1. Get 4 tennis balls
    2. Cut a slit in each ball
    3. Push the chair legs into the slits
    4. It works!!

  • Calming Clothing


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.

    Calming Clothing for Kids has been designed specifically for children with sensory processing difficulties, including children with a diagnosis like autism, ADHD. Calming Clothing provides children with deep pressure, or proprioceptive, sensory input. Deep pressure input can be calming and organising for many children who find it difficult to self-regulate. This can help them in all aspects of their day - their interactions with others, their attention, their activity levels and behaviour. Proprioceptive input also provides children with improved information about their bodies and this can help their motor skills - both fine and gross motor.

    Calming Clothing includes Tshirts and singlets that have a casual look and can be worn on their own, or under other clothing. They are designed to fit the child snuggly to provide a feeling of security and calm, but not too tight. They are designed with maximum length to the torso, and the singlets have full coverage around the neck and shoulders to provide extra deep pressure.

    Calming Clothing is made from easy-care premium quality 280 gram combed cotton and lycra blend. The fabric is soft, breathable and absorbs moisture for the comfort of the child. All items are machine washable on a gentle cycle. The seams are sewn externally, then sewn down, with the content label attached to the outside of the garment to prevent any issues with tactile hypersensitivity. The label can be removed by the purchaser.

    Use the following table to measure your child's size:

    Size Length (cm) Width (cm)
    2 34 25
    3 42 26
    4 47 27
    6 50.5 29

  • Calming Vest


    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.

    Weighted vests work by providing children with sensory processing difficulties with the deep pressure sensory input that they need to calm and organise themselves. This type of ongoing sensory input can make all the difference for some children. We recommend consulting with an Occupational Therapist to determine if this is an appropriate strategy for your child.

    The vests are available in black and navy blue. When ordering a vest please send us an accompanying email indicating your choice of colour and your child's weight. We make the weights up to 5% of your child's body weight. This is the recommended weight, however some children do better with more weight. In this case you can purchase an extra set of weights - see Calming Vest Weights Set.  The weights sit in pockets at the child's waist, 2 at the front and 2 at the back. 

    It's important not to leave the weights in for extended periods of time, e.g. greater than 45 minutes. You can reach in and easily take the weights out of the pockets without having to take the vest off the child. Then pop them back in approximately 45 minutes later.   

     

    Please allow two weeks for your weighted item to be made for you.

  • Keeping on Track (Alert Program Game)

    $86.50
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    This is not your ordinary board game! All players are drivers with engines, traveling around a course, set to check in regularly on their internal engine speeds. Are they speeding or idling? What can they do to run “just right?” You, the adult, are the Track Official, directing the action and discussion. All of this supports the players' cognitive, social, sensory, self-regulation development. Keeping on Track Board Game can be enjoyed at home and school, and in therapy settings.

    After children have been introduced to the Alert Program® concepts through the Leader’s Guide activities and Test Drive songs, they are ready for this one-of-a-kind game. The 45cm x 45cm board captures children’s imaginations with colourful illustrations and landmarks along their road trip. Four cars, one die, and three sets of cards are included in the game box. The game cards reinforce the three stages of the Alert Program® as taught in the Leader’s Guide. When answering Engine Speed card questions, children learn more about how to identify engine levels (Stage One). Using the Tools cards, children learn more about the five ways to change engine levels (Stage Two). The Tune-Up cards ask questions that encourage problem-solving and independent self-regulation (Stage Three). Blank cards provided can be used to stack the deck with individualised questions. With your purchase, you’ll receive game instructions with “bonus materials” offering numerous ways to play and adapt the game. You’ll have everything you need to guide children to learn how to “keep on track” at home, at school, or in therapy settings. NOTE: This game will serve you well, if you are familiar with self-regulation and sensory processing theory. If you are a newcomer to the Alert Program®, you may want to purchase the Leader’s Guide to get the most out of playing the Keeping on Track Board Game or we recommend finding an Occupational Therapist to support your efforts.

    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    A practical and information new resource by Sally McNamara, Occupational Therapist

    The Sensory Support Flip-Book Guide has been created for anyone who wants to find out more about the sensory preferences and needs of someone they know- or perhaps learn more about themselves. It is particularly relevant for individuals who are more easily 'over-stimulated' or 'under-stimulated' by certain sensations, and can become dysregulated as a result. 

    It has been written as a guide for parents or teachers of children who want to provide the optimal conditions for learning, development and task engagement for an individual (or individuals) that they know.
    The book can also be used as a tool for therapists to guide basic assessment, education, treatment and support of individuals in their care. The flip-card style allows for easy identification of sensory needs and preferences so that the relevant strategies can then be put in place to support that person as required.

  • Tangle Therapy

    $18.50
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.


    Tangle Therapy consists of the classic inter-connected twistable 'tangle' pieces with larger, latex-free rubber coated pieces with distinctive raised tactile nodules to provide a sensory-calming, tactile experience. It encourages repetitive movement patterns which are good, both for fine motor skills, range of motion and strength, as well as the calming sensory aspect. Many people have found children (and adults) with ASD or a sensory processing disorder were calmer and better able to focus when fidgeting with a tangle due to the repetitive movements and tactile input. They are an ideal quiet fidget for at school or when out.

    Made of ABS plastic covered with a soft (latex free) rubberised material. Comes in one colour combination - Blue/Purple/Green. 

    Please note: Choking Hazard. Contains small parts.

  • Test Drive: Introducing the Alert Programme Through Song

    $77.50
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    The Test Drive book and CD, with its appealing songs to support children's self-regulation, is full of practical ideas and suggestions. Whether or not you are familiar with the Alert Program®Test Drive is the simplest way to introduce the programme’s concepts to children in schools, homes, or therapy settings. Listen to a Test Drive song just once and everyone will be humming and tapping their toes to the catchy words and rhymes, perhaps not even knowing they are learning about self-regulation! 
    Everyone will enjoy the ease with which children learn and remember the Alert Program®concepts through these playful, yet educational song lyrics such as: “I do my best work and it's a great place to be. When my engine's just right, nothing's stopping me!” The Test Drive book walks you through exactly how to introduce the Alert Program® to a group or individual (in classrooms, therapy clinics, or homes). You can’t go wrong with the straight forward instructions given in the book. Here are some examples of how the songs outline the basic Alert Program® concepts:
    • The Just Right Song teaches students the engine analogy and sample ways to change how alert they feel.
    • The Best Work song, with its bluesy swing, piques students’ interest in learning how easy it is to focus and pay attention when engines are in a just right level of alertness.
    • The Five Ways song expands students’ awareness of how to change their engine levels and how to choose from a larger variety of engine strategies.
    • The Engine Song reinforces not only the engine vocabulary and strategies, but adds a self-monitoring, social-emotional dimension. With phrases such as, “make a good decision, yes I can!,” the song reminds children that they can make good self-regulation choices.
    • The Alive, Awake, Alert song offers an ideal movement break for children and adults at school, at home, or in therapy settings.
    • And the Transition Songs are instrumental recordings of selected Test Drive songs that can be used to support students in times of transition to better self-regulate. Teachers, parents, or therapists can use the songs to assist students to end one activity and begin another, perhaps explaining, “In two minutes, when the song ends, we’ll finish ____ and then start _____.”

    The Time Timers enable children to see how much time is left without having to know how to tell the time. The Timers have clear, distinctive colours, large dial numbers, and an ultra-quiet quartz movement. These features make the Time Timers perfect for students with difficulties maintaining concentration on tasks, and persisting with tasks. This can be applicable for children with sensory processing issues, ADD, ADHD, autism, etc. They can be used at home, within therapy sessions, and at school, and for both individuals and groups of children. With the Time Timer, the clear visual feedback helps children better understand the passage of time and can monitor their own activities.  This improves their confidence and gives them organised time periods which can reduce anxiety. Children know how much longer they need to persist with a task!

    Time Timers can also be used in the following situations:
    • Timing activity sessions and specific exercises
    • Self-monitoring
    • Overseeing speech, hearing and vision therapies
    • Memory prompting for medications, appointments, etc.

    This is a brilliant new OT game! Really adaptable to help children work at different levels at many different skills. The game itself is a game of speed, but there's no need to add this component if this is not an important therapy goal. If you're working on fine motor control, visual motor skills, crossing the body midline, then this is a great way to do it. Children need to recreate the image on their card by collecting the wooden beads from the pile - with chopsticks!! Of course, you could grade it down by using fingers at first.

    $49.50
    All prices include GST. Please select variations below to see separate item pricing.



    Weighted lap bags are a very practical way to provide children with calming deep pressure sensory input in the classroom environment. They can be used to help children maintain their concentration during mat time as well as at the desk for written work. These lap bags are filled with poly pellets and are made in cordoroy with segregated sections to ensure even weight distribution. Poly pellet lap bags can be washed in the washing machine. We also have the Animal Lap Bags for another weighted option.

    Please send us an accompanying email when ordering to advise us of your colour choice - navy blue, royal blue, red or green.

    Available in 1.5kg and 2.5kg and now XL 3kg weights. As a general guideline we tend to advise 1.5kg for under 6 years and 2.5kg for over 6 years, however it really depends on the sensory processing needs of the child. If your child is actively seeking deep pressure sensory input (as opposed to just being calmed by applying deep pressure input), then we recommend the heavier weight.
