The trusty Move n’ Sit cushion that a generation of kids with sensory seeking or postural instability issues have used on their chairs can also be a great upright surface for toddlers with the same issues! Here is a two year-old client on his favorite piece of equipment. He calls it his “bumpies”, and loves the textured surface since he is a major sensory seeker who isn’t always aware of a less intense floor surface under his feet. The incline as arranged above is tilting him backward, but you can turn it over for a smoother side, and rotate it to shift him forward. It is easy to clean, lightweight, and incredibly durable. Mine is over 5 years old and going strong!
Move n’ Sit Cushions Can Also Be Stand n’ Balance Cushions
