I have a 5 year old daughter and she has a real struggle to:
- Sit in the middle of her chair
- Stay there without fidgetting
In terms of #1, she often falls off her chair as she sits on the edge. Even after constant reminders, etc. it doesn't seem to be getting better and in particular she often falls off her chair given the imbalance and i am afraid she will get hurt. When i move her into the middle within a few mins she ends up on the edge as she isn't comfortable. She constantly wants to stand up or play with her chair and basically struggles to sit still.
She does have some sensory issues so I am guessing this is related but not 100% sure. I sometimes feel like she needs to go back to a booster seat to force her to sit in the middle of the seat and not move but obviously think that seems like a backwards approach given her age.
Any suggestions for things to attempt? From googling I see different types of chairs, etc but not sure if anyone of them actually will make a difference.
