The Child Rite Seat offers assistance to children with special needs. It's Bumbo-style wrap around back provides support to help your child sit up on his or her own. The extra wide leg openings and broad hip area make it comfortable and useful for a long time. Great care has been engineered into the seat to insure that it is soft and comfortable while remaining sturdy and supportive.
The seat is a great option for many children who have special needs. It allows children to be on the floor with their family and peers, with a nice balance between stability and freedom and perfect for family and peer-level socialization.
The Childrite seat promotes appropriate positioning and a "natural" sitting experience without the use of peripherals. This allows some children to work on upper extremity reaching and trunk rotation activities while feeling secure in their seated position.
Since the design of the chair minimizes the thrust that accompanies postural adjustments for so many children with spasticity, the child's hands are relaxed and free to learn the 'finger plays' and other movements while they engage in songs, stories and supervised play. It also gives the child a great, natural opportunity to work on head and upper body control, because they don't have to fight against their own excessive movements.
As many parents are concerned if their child will “fit”, we understand your concerns and want to share that we are aware of children weighing up to 70 pounds and 12 - 13 years old that are using the Childrite. However, to ease your concerns even more, we do offer a 30 day return policy on the product in case the Childrite seat does not fit your particular child.
