Rocking Back and Forth

A student in a general education teacher'a class rocks back and forth. She states that once he starts rocking, he loses focus. Our OT gave him a seat cushion to try, but he does not want to use it. I would like other intervention strategies to present to him.

Why not try a weighted lap pad/quilt or a weighted vest? They work wonders in my household. My 6 year old has been using one in class for about a month. He can now count to 5 and tell you his name. That is impressive since he has had 3 years of therapy at home and is in his third year of school. He went to SEPS (special education preschool), kindergarten, and now is in first grade.
