The Bear On The Chair® is a positive reinforcement tool and motivator for children with Autism and special needs. The product features a soft cuddly teddy bear, a separate chair and a booklet which explains the Bear On The Chair® story. What really makes this bear effective is the two ‘happy’ and ‘sad’ face patches which can be attached directly onto the Bear’s T-shirt.
This is a great tool for positive parenting techniques and motivates children to clearly express their current feelings, plus adults can use it as a tool to teach their child right and wrong behavior. Many parents have seen enormous progress in toddlers when using the Bear as a positive reinforcement tool. The Bear On The Chair® is especially effective when targeting specific goals such as expressing feelings and preventing sensory overload. Teachers and parents who work with special needs children are amazed at how well it works to redirect aggression and increase focus.
My son named his bear Chocolate, we read the story about the how the bear in the chair can help him make good choices throughout the day, and how he can use Chocolate to help me and daddy know when he is having a rough time.
M son is having a real rough time right now, both at home and at school, but when Chocolate is around, my son is calm. I hope that as time goes on, my son will use Chocolate to not only help himself cope with that which bothers him, but to also help me know how he is feeling.
I love my son very much, and I only want what is best for him, and while it can be both trying and tiring, I will do whatever it takes to make my son feel safe and happy in this world. Hopefully, Chocolate, the bear in the chair, can help me achieve that.
My son loves Chocolate…the only downside? He wishes that Chocolate was a military bear 🙂
