Compass Chair by Rifton – A Classroom Seating Option for Children with Autism


A recent blog by Rifton, highlights the benefits of using the NEW Compass Chair in a classroom setting for children with Autism.

With its supportive seat, sturdy armrests and stable frame with a weight limit of up to 113kg the Compass Chair by Rifton offers mildly involved students the support they need to feel secure and comfortable.

The blog looks into the research of seating and autism, including a case study of ‘Classroom Progress with the Compass Chair.’  Click here to read more!

“We have had trouble getting one of our students to sit even for a few moments, which, of course, makes learning very difficult. We’ve tried different seating options but nothing seemed to work. Imagine our surprise when he saw the Compass Chair for the first time and , entirely on his own, went and sat in it until we had to ask him to get up!” Kathleen Marshall, Anderson Centre for Autism, NY
