Do any of your children suffer from learned helplessness? Do they seem to give up or quit as soon as a task gets difficult? Do they ever refuse to try activities, or get labeled as lazy or unmotivated? Are mistakes or failures usually blamed on other people or conditions? Well, the good news is that...

Bouncy Bands are great for increasing concentration!!

Bouncy Bands for DESKS and CHAIRS!
Wiggle while you work!
Bouncy Bands are quiet and they don't distract others. Active students are more productive and spend more time on task when they can move. Students with short legs enjoy being able to rest their feet on the Bouncy Band instead of having them dangle all day. In addition, students who feel anxious when working enjoy being able to stretch their legs to release their anxiety while they work.
Elephant Thoughts now has these in stock!

Aspergers is a tricky diagnosis. They are smart and high functioning and often get labeled as misbehaved kids. Understanding the struggles the kids have such as executive functioning, sensory processing and difficulties with social cues can explain why I child may be under a lot of stress.

Every School Should Have Pedal Desks For Kids With ADHD

For some kids movement, movement, movement is key. Pedal desks create inclusion and empowers the child to self regulate!!
They are expensive but there are other ways to move without being disruptive such as standing desks or even touching elbow to opposite knee while sitting creating a bicycle type movement.

Pedal desks are the next frontier for ADHD treatment, and with at least 1-3 students with ADHD in each classroom and a move towards bringing more movement into the classroom for all students, pedal desks in the classroom is an idea worth embracing.
