The world of ordinary furniture can be unfriendly to children with autism spectrum disorder and other kids with special needs. Hard surfaces or seats that are too big or too high can present a Goldilocks-like predicament: Nothing is “just right.”
If your child needs sensory input to focus on a task or requires support for proper positioning, specialized furniture made for children with autism could be part of the solution. Autism furniture isn’t just about comfort and function. It’s designed to promote safety and stability, and often comes with features that help meet sensory needs.
