So, my mum works at a primary school,
and she called me this afternoon to see how I was going with University and stuff. And we got onto the topic of my concentration problems and all that jazz. I brought up how the fidget cube I bought a while ago has been a big help with studying. And eventually, we started talking about fidget spinners. Because, as most of ya’ll know, have become a big trend lately.
Long story short, the school my mum works at want to ban them because of all the NT kids with them. They’re being distracting and annoying and doing tricks with them and, well, not using them how they’re intended to be used.
Since the principal of that school is a good family friend as well as my mum’s boss, I asked mum to pass on a message to not ban them, since ND kids need them to concentrate and stim and all that other stuff.
Guys, I don’t want them to ban them at that school (or any school for that matter). There’s a ton of kids with ADHD and autism there, and a ban on fidget toys would be awful. I need a way to explain to Anne (the principal) what to do to make sure they won’t get banned but can still be, like, used properly if you know what I mean?
Please. I don’t want those kids who need them to lose something so important.
