Fidget spinners were introduced as a tool for treating ADHD and autism, but have become a distraction, according to schools in New York and Florida.
The spinners are usually small discs with three round edges that produce a calming effect (and annoying hum) when spun. People use them because they soothe, and there’s no shortage of YouTube videos of them in action. These devices promise greater concentration, especially for those that battle with some type of attention disorder, which is apparently everyone on the planet these days.
Because scientists and doctors disagree that the gadget actually creates any real progress for those who suffer from ADHD or anxiety, schools have banned the device from class rooms in Florida and New York after being overrun with students spinning in class.
