Different seating options provide appropriate outlets for moving and fidgeting during the school day and at home. When kids are taught to identify and honor their preferences for fidgeting, movement, and alternative positioning, they feel that their needs are being recognized, thereby increasing their engagement and motivation in the activity. No one is meant to sit still all day long, especially kids!
Possible alternative seating options include:
- Howda Hug/Coleman chairs
- T-stool/Kore stool/Learnature stool
- Standing desk
- Push feet against theraband/bungee cord on chair legs
- Sitting on therapy ball
- Bean bag chair
- Lay on belly
We encourage you to ask your child what the October "Tool of the Month" is and try it at home!
