My students need some large soft pillows to allow them different seating positions.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students have special needs, and because of their needs they are unable to sit in a regular chair, so we need some large soft pillows that form around them. This would allow them to be placed in a variety of positions throughout the school day.
My students range in grade from Kindergarten to 6th grade.
They have a variety of disabilities with most of them being severely disabled. Most of them are in wheelchairs and are non-verbal. We are a school located in a low-socioeconomic area in Arizona.
I am requesting 6 Huggz pillows of various sizes to use in my classroom. I have several students who need to be placed in different positions throughout the day. These students are unable to sit in a conventional chair, and having these pillows would allow us to place them in a variety of positions.
I believe this project is important because my classroom has students with some high needs, and working in this area it is very difficult to fund items for my classroom.
I don't want my students to sit in their wheelchairs all day. Having this project funded would really help in providing appropriate positioning of the students throughout the day.
