Dr. and Mrs. Albert Simone (former RIT President) donated 20 Vidgets to Margaret's House kindergarten class at RIT. The teacher, Sue Northrup, said she "allows kids to choose how to sit it the Vidget based on individual needs." She has replaced all the chairs in the room with Vidgets and loves how they allow the kids to fidget. Thank you Dr. and Mrs. Simone for making this wonderful donation!

"The little girl I used it with sat down and ate lunch which she usually does not do - she tends to stand or sit and wiggle in her seat."
Melanie, Director of Occupational Therapy
"When Pearl is in a Vidget, her behavior is 100 times better than when she’d in a normal chair. She’s still has difficulty sitting for that long, but it makes a HUGE difference! Without it, she’s everywhere."
Lara, Pre-K Teacher
