Help kids focus in the classroom and be more coordinated. Kids can focus better with ADHD symptoms if they can move while sitting. Providing Wobble chairs allows them enhanced freedom of movement without leaving their seats. Sometimes kids with ADHD get labeled as irresponsible, careless, or lazy. This criticism is not only inaccurate and unhelpful but it is also obviously quite hurtful. Chronic disorganization can be debilitating to people with ADHD. Kids with ADHD often need a lot of structure and support to help with organization. Also, it helps them to be organized if they have furniture that allows them to separate their belongings from their desk, so cubby storage compartments allow then to store their belongings in a place where they are less likely to get misplaced. Findings from a study of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) show that sensory intervention -- for example, deep pressure and strenuous exercise -- can significantly improve problem behaviors such as restlessness, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Coordination exercises improve cognitive processing in children with focus issues. Agility cones are a good tool to help children on their proprioception which has been shown to improve their symptoms.
