    I have the "superglue" cushion. The cushion is "superglued" to the carpet and child's bottom is "superglued" to the cushion. All in the mind and one mention of the word "superglue" works a charm. Usually. When child is particularly restless, he gets a bit of blu-tack to play with.

    Thanks guys, i'd never even thought of using rubber mouse mats / place mats!

    And that ^ is hillarious... if only..!

    I am going to get him a stress ball to give him something to fiddle with.
  6. You could always give him blue tack or play dough for him to fiddle with. Thats what we used to give a sen pupil at my school. It worked realy well and was cheap and easy to come by.
  7. you can find "carpet spots" in most education catalogues...usually in the FS section

    These look cool I think:
    and boring but cheaper:
    and my personal favourite in terms of being able to tidy up and store them efficiently:

  8. Careful with blutac - we had a child that used to eat it!
