Neurodiversity and standing desks

Stand and be inclusive

Medical experts and organisations like the ADHD Foundation connect being sedentary with negative learning and working outcomes in the classroom, office and at home for neurodiverse children and adults.

Our EIGER desks are significantly assisting neurodiverse people (ADHD, ADD, Autisitic, Dyslexic, Dyspraxic) by simply giving them the option stand and be inclusive.

Neurodiverse Children

How a standing desk can help children with ADHD, Autism and all neurodiverse conditions.

The ADHD Foundation works in partnership with individuals, families, doctors, teachers, and other agencies to improve emotional well being, educational attainment, behaviour, and life chances through better understanding and self-management of ADHD, ASD, and related learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, Irlen’s Syndrome, dyscalculia and Tourette’s Syndrome.

Behaviour

Allow your students to burn off extra energy, keep focus and stay on task.

Feeling Happier

By helping a neurodiverse child with their classroom experience they feel inclusive and happier.

Being Comfortable

A neurodiverse child often has to focus to sit still and therefore not concentrating on their learning.

Neurodiverse Adults

How a standing desk can help adults with ADHD, Autism and all neurodiverse conditions.

The ADHD Foundation works in partnership with individuals, families, doctors, teachers, and other agencies to improve emotional well being, educational attainment, behaviour, and life chances through better understanding and self-management of ADHD, ASD, and related learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, Irlen’s Syndrome, dyscalculia and Tourette’s Syndrome.

Reduce Anxiety

Neurodiverse adults often experience increased anxiety due to their workspace not suiting their needs.

Increase Dopamine

Neurodiverse individuals have low levels of dopamine. Movement of any kind increases this and assists.

Fulfil Potential

Neurodiverse people have amazing attributes that in the right environment benefit both them and a company.

Dopamine is vital

Dopamine is one of the brains major neurotransmitters.

Known as “cognitive candy”, ADHD individuals and other neurodiverse conditions have lower levels of dopamine.

It is vital when it comes to focus, memory, reward, and motivation. Moving and fidgeting is a natural way to stimulate the body to produce more.

Trying to get a child that fidgets to sit still in a classroom or learning environment makes no sense. Moving is an urge they cannot resist.

It is the same for adults.

By using a standing desk children and adults can improve their integration, involvement and productivity in the classroom or workspace by not having to focus on sitting still.

The EIGER Desk helps achieve exactly that.

ADHD Foundation

We are included in their national training information courses.

The ADHD Foundation works in partnership with individuals, families, doctors, teachers, and other agencies to improve emotional well being, educational attainment, behaviour, and life chances through better understanding and self-management of ADHD, ASD, and related learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, Irlen’s Syndrome, dyscalculia and Tourette’s Syndrome.

They have been advising teachers and parents for years to allow their neurodiverse children to move, fidget and stand whilst learning.

We are delighted to be one of the few businesses they work with because of the impact our EIGER Student Standing Desk has for ADHD children.

Testimonials

What our customers are saying

The children loved them and most wanted to try using them. It helped some of our more fidgety children to stay at their desks rather than roaming around. It was great for children to have the choice of how to work. 

Jenny Stiff

St John's CE Primary School

We have found the EIGER standing desks extremely useful and would like to keep the ones we have had on trial. I would recommend the EIGER's to other schools.

Suzanne Owen

Oasis Academy Wamdon

We find the standing desks invaluable for providing another option for those children who truly find it difficult to stay still. They are easy to set up and manoeuvre, and work well in a busy classroom.
