The Wiggle Method

One teacher prescribes exercise balls for her ADD students.

"I had one of my ADD students sit on an exercise ball during class. He could wiggle back and forth without standing up, and, for the first time, he was able to complete his work consistently. Now I have three or four students sitting on balls!"

-Martha Highfill, third-grade teacher, Oxnard, California
