Large Rifton Activity Chair - The Day School
In order to help our kids increase their independence and self-sufficiency, we are always trying to provide opportunities throughout the day to practice motor skills. The Rifton Activity Chair (R870) will allow our patients to learn functional sitting and motor skills while they actively participate in activities, tasks, and daily routines. With its versatile seating system and adjustable height, the chair will allow our students of different heights and weights to work on instructional activities at table height. This versatility also allows their feet to reach the floor to encourage transfer skills. Your gift will help our amazing kids reach an even greater level of independence.

Cost of wish: $4,105; quantity needed: 1

 *If the final cost of an item is less than the amount contributed, any remaining funds will be dedicated to complementary needs or, if not possible, released into the general fund.
