Mrs. Romano from Winter Park FL is requesting flexible seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating in the Autism Classroom to Increase Focus.

My students need wobble seats to increase muscle tone, provide constant need for movement-based sensory input that contributes to fidgeting, slouching or soreness.

My Students

I am a special education teacher of wonderful students with disabilities in a self-contained classroom setting with grades K-5. The majority of my students fall within the range of the autism spectrum disorder, but we also have students with emotional and behavioral disorders and intellectual disabilities.

My students are absolutely amazing, unique, and inspiring beings.

They are kind, funny, sweet, and generous! They are eager to learn, to do well, and to please others around them. They work extremely hard if not harder than any other students I know. On a daily basis, they overcome so many challenges that as part of their disabilities. They perceive and process the world differently which at times make it hard for them to function without the manifestation of meltdowns. But those challenges do not stop them from being strong and being who they are.

Their disability does not define who they are. My students are warriors with incredible mental strength and I admire them. They inspire me every day to be the best teacher that I can be. Our school is eligible for Title I and most of our student population receive free-reduced breakfast/lunch.

My Project

Our classroom is kindly requesting Wobble Stools in order to provide active and flexible seating. Our students with disabilities are kinesthetic learners which make it difficult for them to sit still. Wobble Stools allow students to wiggle and fidget while remaining seated. They also improve posture and muscle tone. It is important to increase strength and muscle tone because they promote motor control to use a pencil, scissors, and other fine and gross motor activities and tools. Wobble seats would provide sensory input and energy burning, and increase blood flow. They allow students to move and adjust themselves in a non-disruptive way while making them more attentive in class.
