I need a chair for active sitting

Active Sitting can be the Right Move for Your Classroom

Research has shown that young developing minds require motion to acquire important foundational skills for learning. The sensory system that processes and responds to movement helps to coordinate the eyes, hands and body for fine motor and gross motor activities. Most people move or fidget while they work. These are unconscious strategies that help us stay focused and engaged. Some children, and especially children with diagnoses of ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder, may need more movement then their peers to help them organize their bodies for learning. Dynamic seating can improve a child’s ability to pay attention and participate constructively. Especially for younger children whose sensory systems are still developing, opportunities for dynamic seating can be very beneficial.

At Adaptivemall.com our therapists have put together a collection of active seating options and products that can provide movement and sensory input during sitting that can help children to calm, self-regulate behavior and stay focused. Kore Brand Active Chairs and Wobble Chairs have a simple design that allows movement in all directions. Core muscles are engaged so not only are kids paying attention, they’re working on postural control and improving the strength and endurance of their core muscles. The R82 Scallop allows for rocking as does the popularLeckey Pal Classroom Seat when purchased with the base rocker accessory.

Sensory Input- Helping Kids Stay Calm, Focused and Engaged

Coming at this issue from a slightly different angle, you might want to consider our Senseez Vibrating Pillows. They’re fun, lightweight, colorful vinyl shapes with a gentle vibrating mechanism. Activated by pressure they can help to calm and relax children that need this type of sensory input to help them sit still and be attentive during school and mealtimes. Floor sitters by Special Tomato and Tumble Forms offers yet another option for active sitting because when the seat is positioned in an upright position and the user’s feet are in contact with the floor, the chair can be moved through stepping or pushing with the feet offering a therapeutic activity for strength, endurance and alternating reciprocal use of legs
