This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Most parents and educators of children with autism or sensory processing disorder are already familiar with the classroom benefits a simple weighted lap pad can offer, but they are useful in other ways for kids and adults alike. They can be used in the home or office, for long car rides, and some have even found them helpful in alleviating the symptoms of restless leg syndrome. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 26, 2018:

We prioritized durability along with comfort as most lap pad users will tend to fidget with them to satisfy their sensory/tactile needs. Also recognizing that autistic children grow into adults, provided multiple options for adults for use at work in the home.
