Great item for older kids with ADHD symptoms
on 11 November 2015
I have to admit that it has taken me a year to finally buy this plate because of the price. I am a little bit of a skin flint and when I can buy a normal plate for 50p then anything over that is expensive! ! However I have a 5 yr old girl on the waiting list for camhs reference ADHD possible ASD and a 2 yr old who copies his over exuberant sister!! And meal times are a bonafide nightmare with neither of them eating... I therefore finally took the plunge and I have to say it was a success. My 5 yr old still got off her chair twice but was so interested in the plate and the chocolate prize at the end that she finished a whole meal in double quick time. My 2 yr old skipped straight to pudding so note to self that 2 yr old are tricky :) I have since used these plates on numerous occasions with similar positive results. (I no longer put the pudding option in for the 2 yr old until he has eaten)
The only real negative is it isn't easily used with certain food because the holes aren't huge. Eg a burger in a bun etc just doesn't fit so it was back to the old plates for that meal which degenerated back into no eating and sillyness so the plate is a great addition to our household.
