The new “Biggie” Slide bead fidget: works the same as the small one but is 3-4 feet long and made with natural wooden beads. This was designed specifically for working at midline or crossing midline, range of motion and strengthening for upper extremity stability. Suspend the fidget vertically- a carabiner clip is included, at the desired height, to one side or at midline. The player must reach up, grasp a bead and slide it all the way down. If the bottom is secured or held in place, beads can then be reversed and slid back up the strings. Wooden beads avoid a “childish” appearance so can easily be appropriate for older students or even adults. More motivating and fun then a finger ladder! Simple, yet memorizing, rewarding and calming.
