Poor core strength is often the reason kids can’t sit still…
“Do you mind taking a look at one of my students? He just can’t seem to stay in his chair…”
As a school based Occupational Therapist, I hear this question at least twice a week.
For the most part, kids are expected to sit at their desks in the classroom. There are times when the class breaks up into groups and move around to sit on the floor, etc., but for the rest of the day, they are supposed to sit in their seat.
