As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.
All of the students I service have been diagnosed with Dyslexia which makes it extremely hard to read and to write.
A large majority of them also face additional challenges such as ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and Dysgraphia (difficulty writing). Despite the many challenges they face, they come into my classroom everyday with a smile on their face and ready to learn.
Kids with ADHD are prime candidates to underperform in a classroom setting. The problem starts with the inability to sit, be still and focus. They have trouble retaining the information being given to them. My students not only have dyslexia but a double whammy when having the inability to focus.
Wiggle chairs are one of the most effective tools you can use to help your child actively combat ADHD symptoms without the use of any therapy or expensive medication.
If the ADHD is left untreated, your child's grades will begin to suffer and could lead to frustration causing behavior problems.
