One of the most well known problems with a child who has a learning disability is that they may have problems sitting still while class is going on. Having a hard time grasping a subject for a small child can usually lead to becoming disinterested, bored and restless while class is going on. While they may not act out to the level where they are actually interrupting class or being totally disruptive there are other ways to cause a problem and one of those is constantly fidgeting in their seats.
Of course when the child is moving around as often as some of them will, the standard school desks will constantly creak and crack and even screatch across the classroom floor from time to time. Parents of special needs children should work closely with the childâ€™s teachers to see what kind of solutions can be made to at the very least avoid as much noise as possible. One way to avoid the kind of creaking and cracking is to put a seat cushion down. A seat cushion that comes in the standard â€˜Oâ€ shape can actually help because the child will think they are getting quite a bit of motion while in fact they arenâ€™t moving that much.
Another technique that can be tried is to use a different kind of desk, one that is separate from the chair can work wonders in cutting down the noise because the one piece desks are notorious for creating more noise. Of course either one of these solves should only be used if the teacher and the schoolâ€™s administration is 100 percent on board with the idea. There are going to be students who will resent the student who gets a more comfortable or different seat and that may cause more problems for the teacher than the noise that the fidgeting was making.
