improvements were noticeable and immediate!"

"My students are always fidgeting, rolling their pencils, getting out of their seats, etc. It is very disruptive for
my group of special education students. The Focus Lappy allows the students to fidget as much as they
need to and still remain on task."

"The Focus Lappy helped my student focus better while working in class. The pockets provided a place for
his active hands."
