Fidget Spinners, Nashville expert speaks out

FOX 17 reports on the current ‘fidget spinner’ craze and discussed the implications with Dr. Brett Shapiro, a child psychologist in Nashville. Dr. Shapiro said it is possible for children to become more focused on the spinners than the subject matter they should be focused on, but adds the spinners shouldn’t be written off.
“I understand where teachers are coming from and how they could become a distraction, especially for students who are not using the spinners,” Shapiro said. “However, I wouldn’t dismiss the idea for a child.” Shapiro added “in the end, parents shouldn’t look at the spinners as a cure or final solution to helping with ADHD. I think it’s a good strategy to include, but setting a reinforcement schedule based on a child’s behavior and scheduling break time are also important strategies. A fidget spinner is just another technique to employ.” For the full article, go to: www.fox17.com
