If you are concerned that a student does not understand your directions, ask him/her to repeat them back to you or to a peer.

This website is dedicated to promoting inclusive schooling and exploring positive ways of supporting students with autism and other disabilities. Most of my work involves collaborating with schools to create environments, lessons, and experiences that are inclusive, respectful, and accessible for all learners.


DAY 5: Balance Cushions

Posted on December 06, 2011 in News

Not only do these seating supports look fun, they are fun to use too. Balance cushions like this are commonly called “wiggle seats” as they are a useful support for those learners who need a bit of movement during whole-class instruction and seat-work.

Balance cushions are a great gift for individual students, but many teachers like to use them for every learner in the classroom. Don’t have funding for these sorts of supports? Ask your PTO about doing some fundraising to make classrooms more sensory-safe and comfortable for all.
