Kindergarten for disabled children, ages 2-7.
A sense-stimulating aid: Protac SenSit ball chair
Observed effect: Protac SenSit is used every day at the institution. It is used when a child has demonstrated a need for having their own space, needs to feel secure or has experienced physical unrest. When the chair isn't being used in the rooms, it is kept in the institution's common room where it can be freely used by children and adults who need stimulation. Many children go for the chair, especially at the end of the day when they need to calm down. They use the chair as their rest area. Some children are able to sit in it for a long time, while others use it on and off. Most children can climb up on the chair on their own, which makes it even more accessible and usable. The youngest child needs help getting up on the chair, but can get down from the chair easily. Some children only enjoy sitting and laying on the chair, while others read books or have books read to them by adults while sitting on the chair.
