Fidgety Classroom

This article chronicles an experimental classroom that allows students to stand up, roam around and "the school replaced the standard desks and chairs with adjustable podiums that allow students to stand, kneel on mats or sit on big exercise balls.". Why, you ask? To combat obesity! Has anyone thought that children with sensory intergration disorder or an ASD might benefit from this setup? Why aren't they trying to find out?
