Heads Up! is a company devoted to helping parents, and children who have special needs. Needs like ADD/ADHD, Autism, Sensory, and more.
This from their website explains:
“Heads Up! is a company designed to provide expert information and products for special needs children. Our items have been selected to accommodate various learning styles and strengths, regardless of curriculum used. These special needs products have been found to be especially helpful for children who are distractible or hyperactive.
They have some really neat products and I was blessed with the opportunity to try some thing so neat that I wish I would have had when I was in school.
Did your teacher ever give you a ruler or some thing else to help you keep your eyes on the sentence you were reading to help keep your place? I sure did. I had dyslexia and as I would read the letters would jumble up all over the page (still does some times) and I would lose my spot.
Well, Heads Up has a wonderful product as a reading aide that they call a “frame“. They sent the reviewers a set of each size that comes in many different colors. We tried them out and Kiki has done great with them, though I still can’t get her to read more than a few minutes! LOL! But she does like them and she says they really help her focus on what she is doing so her eyes don’t wonder off to some other page or paragraph. So they do work!
The “Heads Up Frames” come in these sizes and colors:
- Top Of The Line (2-3/8″ by 8″) in yellow, blue
- Double Time (2-3/8″ by 8″) in yellow, blue
- 4″ X 4 1/2″ in yellow, pink, blue, red, green, orange
- 4″ x 9″ in yellow, pink, blue, red, green, orange
- Reader – has a highlight strip of color between two strips of grey, in yellow, green, red, blue, orange, pink, clear
The Cost: $1 each
They also have full page overlays for $5 each in yellow, blue, and green.
They also have some other cool items. I like the fidget products, because all of you who knows Kiki knows she is a fidgeter (so is her dad). So I am hoping to order some of the fidgeting tools soon.
If you have a special needs child you should check out this website. You will find some thing you like and will help you out. They even have a few things for Sensory Integration and that is what Dede was diagnosed with when she was about 3 or 4.
