Wobble cushions for use ON a chair? Does such a thing exist?

Guessing a gym ball isn’t an option??

A half inflated travel cushion might do the job.

You can get stools that wobble but the only one I’ve seen has a very very large base and was £££

If you use a cushion could you maybe sew on some ties to attach to chair and make it safer?


Have you seen the Movin' Sit Chair. Sorry, I would link it if I was techy! I bought one for my son and it did help him, it's made of rubber so doesn't slip.

DS uses one of these there are other colour and prices about. This was just the first result that popped up.

MrsLettuce Tue 05-Dec-17 12:26:34

Sorry, meant to say that we never had any issues with it falling off chairs

yes, you can get wedge cushions through the senco as well as arms for the chairs to stop him falling off. My six year old has dcd, as well as having other sen issues, and these things are being ordered as well as pencil grips and writing slopes and for my son the list goes on and on.

there's also straps that can go on chair legs for the children to play with with their feet. Also your child may need movement breaks.
Lol, unlike MrsLettuce, my son falls off everything, including his chairs.

lol, this is me. I fall over everything and my son has inherited that too.

You either laugh or cry.

Southpaw do beautiful rocking school chairs. Pricey though.

My DD uses a 'movin' sit' wedge wobble cushion both at school and at home. Makes a huge difference!

My DS also uses the movin sit. Really helps him at school.

Would a partially filled hot water bottle do the trick? We've been recommended these by OT's for preschool aged children and they can work well.

The other thing we sometimes do is put the wobble under the feet instead of under the bottom.

When some of my kids are concentrating, their upper body might be perfectly still above the desk, but underneath their legs are paddling away like mad. smile

Following this thread with interest, DD(4) is showing almost all signs of dyspraxia. So worried about what will happen come starting pre school in jan and primary in September!

@MiaowTheCat our energy bill would be amazingly low if we could do that with DD!!

In year 2 ish, my DD2 was allowed to do some work standing up - would that be any help?
