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???)
