I have such a special class this year. I have ten students out of twenty-three that have learning disabilities. Two out of the ten are also Autistic. These ten children are part of an inclusion class that receives services in the classroom with the help of a second teacher that comes in several times throughout the day. The rest of the time, these special children are with me and expected to perform like their typical peers. Sitting still and focusing for a typical child can be difficult, but for a child that already has a learning disability and ADHD, too, the task is almost impossible. These children need to be able to move without distracting or disrupting the class. Research says that even a small amount of movement can help children to focus better. Fidget devices that attach to pencils, or small manipulatives that can be kept in a desk, can help students that have a need to move their hands constantly. Bouncy bands that attach to chairs or desks, and standing desks with swing bars will allow my students the freedom to move without taking away from the learning environment. In addition, all of the children would love to have some alternate seating options such as the stability balls and chairs, overstuffed beanbag chairs, bungee chairs, and rocking floor chair. All of these types of chairs will help the children in a variety of ways. Stability balls and chairs help students that have a weak core to strengthen them. Overstuffed beanbags, bungee and rocking floor chairs will also help to soothe the children that may not always be able to soothe themselves. All of the chairs will provide an alternative to the traditional chairs that all of my students have to sit in now.
