I have several students with ADHD and they have great difficulty sitting in their traditional seats during direct instruction. Several of them prefer to stand behind their desks but this makes it difficult for them to write notes. They are often hunched over their desks which hurts their backs. Their handwriting and ability to keep up with the teacher suffers as well!! My students would love the opportunity to use a standing desk! We already practice flex seating in several classrooms at our school and a standing desk will be one more way for us to differentiate and meet their individual needs. They truly have a desire to do well and participate in the classroom, they just need an alternative way of doing so!
