Another type of child that is benefitting from TheraTogs is the “hyperactive” child and/or child with attention deficit disorder. With the use of TheraTogs, I can get the child to functionally focus on tasks and decrease the amount of distractabilty. This is due to the TheraTogs system providing a type of pressure or comfort needed for a child with distractabilty to process or take in the environment.
The term we use is homeostasis. It is somewhat easy for most of us to achieve so we can function and do many different things throughout the day. But for others they require external help, i.e. TheraTogs, to achieve this so they can participate in higher learning and attend to functional daily skills.
