For functional sitting a child needs to lean slightly forward from the hips. This frees shoulders, arms and hands for eating, writing and toileting or just simply communicating. Ideally a chair should encourage sitting skills while the child is participating in other activities. The Push Handle on the smallest Advancement Chair allows caregivers to move it comfortably. On all chairs, the prompts, straps and supports can be removed as new skills are achieved.
