This photo shows and idea for when LNS children may sometimes throw their heads forward. The colored piece along the back goes around their neck, the half moon shape areas is for their chin to rest on and the lower bar rests on their chest.
The strap shown in this picture is used by a seven year old boy and he feels greatly comforted by knowing that he has this device to rest his chin in those moments when his head tends to be thrown over and over again.
This picture shows an idea for young children to assist with SIB while in bed. The bed is a race car style with the mattress inside only, there is no box spring. The mattress is surrounded by a thick foam piece from JoAnn Fabrics. The foam is then wrapped in a fleece material and slid around the perimeter of the bed. It gives comfort to the LNS child by not allowing the child to bang his head.
These pictures feature a response to biting. This child has a tendency to bite his lower lip. This small piece of fabric is enough to allow him the protection from this biting. It is made from a piece of neoprene surrounded by some outdoor fabric and sewn together. The clips are then attached to his clothing. This apparatus has been approved by the local school district for use to prevent his behaviors.
