“I recently brought the BIG HUG into one of my SPED classrooms. The students literally lined up to try it as I laid it onto the carpet. I had to set a 10-minute time limit so that everyone would have a chance to try it. One student, who has a visual impairment and flash-pot temperament, got into it. His body immediately relaxed, he had a huge smile on his face, and he said “I LOVE IT!” Until that date, we rarely heard anything positive from him. We finally found a strategy for him that works when he becomes upset—and will keep him from becoming upset as part of a sensory diet. I wish that we had a BIG HUG in every school.”
