A small sample of the wonderful stories and experiences with Bear On The Chair®
Nichole from Ohio: Our clinic has been using Bear on a Chair for a couple of months. Our kiddos, whom are all diagnosed with ASD, have truly enjoyed this bear. The goal of our bear is to help our little ones express how they are feeling. When they are having a rough time, we help them put the sad face on, and they squeeze him and hold him. This is used as a sensory break and they really love it. Once they are done, they switch the face to a happy face and put him back on the chair to “watch over them.” Thus far, it has been a blessing to have in our clinic.
Darcy from NY: I am a special education teacher who works with children ages 3 and 4. I have found from past experiences that using an inanimate object can often prevent and diffuse meltdowns which I think the Bear on the chair will work well for; for example, many of my students have difficulty transitioning from one activity to the next or when asked to share a toy, visual timers have worked well in these instances because I simply say, "the timer went off, it's time to…" which seems to prevent the child from directing anger or aggression towards the adult, after all, "the timer did it!"
Lynn from California: My class loves the bear. I show it at the beginning of circle time after reminding them about the rules. I tell them that he has his happy face on as they are all in their seats.
Robin from West Virginia: The Bear has been a success in my classroom. I have a child with Autism with whom it has been very helpful. He does not like when I have to put the frown face on the bear and will immediately try to do whatever is necessary to put the smile back on its face. I am very pleased with the simplicity of the bear and hope to continue with it's success.
