Stability Balls 2018-2019

In today’s world of narrowing attention spans, keeping a child engaged and sitting still in class can be a considerable task.  Some kids need more movement than others.  For some children with a sensory processing disorder or ADHD, being in motion allows their brains to be engaged.  Movement actually allows for alertness and attention.  This is how a stability ball chair helps.  In response to the ball’s instability and to remain balanced while sitting on one, the body instinctively and continually engages core muscle groups. Constant movement is required to stay seated on the ball,  That movement, however slight, helps children to focus.  The ball chair channels their physical energy in a positive way allowing them to focus their work more completely and reach their potential as learners.
