There is a simple trick that school therapists and teachers use a lot for kids who have trouble sitting still. It is to put some Thera-Band stretched around a chair’s legs so that the student can push on it while sitting in their chair. It can help a child who has to be moving much of the time. The child can push on it with their feet so that they are moving while sitting at their desk doing work.
SO cool. This bit of brilliance was designed for students with special needs. Each child has his or her own personal space, which can be outfitted with any sensory comforts that the child might need. AWESOME. Also, one or two of these in a library center would be a super-cool semi-private space for any kid.
