The League School of Greater Boston is a leading private day and residential school for students ages 3 to 22 diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

Our year-round, private educational program offers a full range of social, academic, behavioral and community-life-skills curricula to meet the individual strengths and needs of a diverse population.

The SCERTS model provides a consistent focus on the key challenges facing people with autism, proven support techniques for educators and families, a common language, and a research-based assessment.

The League School’s residential program is open in Norwood and Walpole 365 days a year and is licensed for up to 20 residents.

Our clinical services focus on helping students regulate their emotions through identifying their feelings and helping to appropriately express themselves.

At League School, we believe that if students are given the right set of challenges and supportive strategies, they will grow and achieve success.

The Power of the Fidget

Let’s admit it. We all fidget. We fidget with our pens, the buttons on our shirts, our keys, the paperclip sitting on our desk…the list goes on. These often overlooked little tools help us redirect our restless energy and be more present in the moment. They help us focus our attention, stay calm and allow us to be more active listeners. We often start using these powerful tools without even realizing it but the children we work with often don’t instinctively seek out these magical items. Self-regulation is a common issue that parents and teachers share about those on the autism spectrum and fidget tools are one of the first things that an occupational therapist may offer as a support because they’re easily portable, affordable and extremely versatile.   We’ve compiled a list of our most used fidgets and fidget distributors to help guide you on your fidget journey. Fidgets make excellent stocking stuffers and are a wonderful alternative to sugary snacks at Halloween. Make sure there is a stash in every backpack, purse and car so that they are easily accessible to everyone in the family. Our favorite fidgets: Chewelry or chewy jewelry Tangle Jr. Stress balls (purchased or homemade) Koosh balls Wacky Tracks Worry stones Resistive putty Stretchy animals Bouncy balls (especially those with texture that light up) Pocket Gel Fidgets Calm down bottles (again, purchased or DIY) Chewnoodles Bug-Out Bob Our favorite vendors: Office Playground – Fun & Function – Ark Therapeutic – The Sensory Kids Store – Therapy Shoppe – Amazon – The Dollar Store, Target and Michaels Happy fidgeting,... read more
