Goal

Students will be sitting on therapy balls improving behavior and legible word productivity. In other words, students using ball chairs will be able to sit still, focus, and write more words clearly. 

 

What will be done with my students

When a child sits on a ball chair, they are able to direct their natural kinesthetic energy and need for movement in a positive way, because the child on a ball chair has to constantly move his body on the chair to maintain his balance 

 

Benefits to my students

These ball chairs help children reach their full potential in the classroom, especially for those with sensory processing disorders, ASD, or just have strong need to fidget. It helps strengthen core muscles and improve posture while sitting and is particularly helpful for children with special learning needs.

Furthermore, it greatly alleviates the aching back/legs/arms syndrome that comes from working at a desk for hours. This unique chair employs the same balance ball used in a workout routine, but with an adjustable support bar, easy-glide casters, an air pump, and a desktop guide to help keep it moving. Designed by leading health and fitness experts, the Gaiam Balance Ball chair helps relieve pain and promote proper spinal alignment, posture, a healthier back, and overall well-being.
 

 

Describe the Students

My students are fascinating individuals. They are creative and have a unique obscure way of viewing life. My students think in way, play in a way, and live in a world created by there own minds. There funny, and kind, and have zero ill intentions. They range on many different levels of the Autism spectrum, and move around from ASD certified teacher to ASD certified teacher. They are in smaller classrooms and some require individual aid support. My students are unique, my students are amazing, my students are DESERVING.
