Flexible Work Areas Needed for ADHD Students

Help me give my students flexible seating to assist ADHD students with concentration so that they can be successful in school!

My Students

My classroom consists of 29 inner-city students with nine of them being autistic and an additional six who are English language learners. My school is an inner-city, Title I school. My students are from various ethnic backgrounds. A large majority of my students come from non-English speaking families.

My school does not have available funding to purchase materials that are needed to meet the needs of my special education students and English language learners.

My students are highly motivated and eager to learn. If given the proper resources, they would be given the chance to be as successful as students in the surrounding suburbs.

My Project

My students would benefit greatly with flexible seating within the classroom which would allow them to be more actively engaged during lessons. I am requesting a flex space student lap desk to assist students with ADHD.

With the portable lap desk, students can work wherever they feel most inspired!

The handy desk features a flat surface at just the right height for kids. Plus, the wooden desk is super-durable for years of repeated use, yet light enough for children to move around the classroom. This would give students with ADHD a special area to work in and would assist with concentration and focus.
