Clover Ridge Staff Sew Weighted Sensory Lap Pads for Students

Posted on: November 9, 2016

Weighted sensory lap pads help kids center and concentrate, which can lead to improved learning.  Although very expensive to buy, Clover Ridge staff brought their talents and resources together to make 4 pads for student use.


Each pad measures approximately 15″ by 19″ and after being filled with poly pellets, weighs just under 3 pounds.


Students who can benefit from the use of weighted lap pads will now have them for use at Clover Ridge.
