Goal

To provide students who experience the extensive need for a kinesthetic outlet, demonstrate focus deficits, or experience processing disorders with the opportunity to improve their focus, appropriate engagement, and concentration in the learning environment. 

 

What will be done with my students

The affected students will receive daily access to the balance ball chairs for use at individual seats, or within group activities, directing their natural kinesthetic energy and need for movement in positive ways. This will be a permanently implemented project for students demonstrating these needs, and can benefit them through flexible use across a variety of settings (i. e., general education classrooms, exceptional student resource classrooms, and therapy settings).  

 

Benefits to my students

These chairs will be utilized by approximately 20 special needs students across 5 general education classrooms, 1 alternate small group support setting, and 1 small group therapy setting. It is my strong expectation that these balance ball chairs will greatly assist special needs students reach their full potential in the classroom setting by providing opportunities for appropriate and engaging movement. The frequently provided movement opportunities, however slight, allow for alertness, focus, and positive engagement.  

 

Budget Narrative

This will be a one-time expenditure for balance ball chairs from Isokinetics, Inc., for ongoing use with special needs students in educational settings.
