You can add fidgets directly on top of, on the side of, or under a student’s desk. Some options include a strip of velcro, calming strips with a tactile component, or specially made desk fidgets that have pieces of fabric to manipulate.
Wiggle Wobble Chair Feet
This is my new favorite tool from the Bouncyband Company. These discs slip right onto a traditional classroom chair, turning it into a dynamic wobble chair. This is a great option if you want something that is easy to use and install. Check out their website for a video on how to use this awesome tool!
A bouncy band is a great option that can be easily installed on a classroom desk. It allows a student to push his/her feet against it for sensory input. You can purchase the official kit from the Bouncy Band company, which is nice because it includes a high quality band as well as plastic pieces that stop the band from falling down to the ground. If you don’t have the funds to purchase the official kit, you can try tying a piece of Theraband on the desk as an alternative option.
