SITTING STILL" ISN'T ALWAYS A GOOD THING! These chairs will make an enormous difference for the students in my classroom! I've observed other resource room classrooms utilizing these sensory furniture items. 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 more words clearly. Providing them with opportunities to move and fidget during lessons without disruptions will help them focus on lessons being taught.
