Many of my students are wiggly and fidgety and have a very difficult time sitting in class and listening and following directions. They need something to help them increase their focus and alertness. This is where a ball chair comes in! When a child sits on a ball chair, they are able to direct their natural kinesthetic energy and need for movement in a positive way, because the child on a ball chair has to constantly move his body on the chair to maintain his balance. In 2003, a study was published in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy concluding that in students with ADHD, sitting on therapy balls improved behavior and legible word productivity. In other words, students using ball chairs were able to sit still, focus, and write words more clearly.
