Fidgeting Brings Focus

One mother finds that bendable pencils and origami help her son focus.

"My middle-school son fidgets in order to focus. At first, his teachers didn't understand how fidgeting could be helpful, and it was hard to find ways for him to keep his hands busy without bothering classmates. What finally worked? Doodling, bendable pencils, origami - and educating the teachers."
