My apologies to anyone expecting some creatively painted chair!  I bought my son an inexpensive exercise ball to use at his desk in his room.  He is a kinetic kid and one that probably has a hard time sitting still.  I have several nieces who are LD teachers and we have discussed all the learning challenges my son – who has never tested as LD – has.  We have worked with him intensively throughout his academic career and this past year he has blossomed quite nicely.  He is finally able to take on his work more independently.  I still work with him quite a bit, but now he goes to his room to work on some homework.  He loves the ball!  My nieces report that they often use the balls for students and I have also seen reports on the use of these balls in the news.  So far so good!

PS (See his bow tie hanging there???)
