It's been something we were looking at getting for a while. It is so important to have a safe place for him to sit. We can put him on the couch, but he tips over every couple of minutes. He can't really lay flat on the floor, and it's really hard to pick him up from there. We also have a papasan chair for him but that was also hard for me to get him in and out of it.
The unfortunate thing is that chairs for children with special needs are SO EXPENSIVE. The chair is basically a large piece of foam that is covered with a waterproof liner and then upholstered. The upholstery can be removed and washed, which is nice. But the chair itself was a big investment.
It is worth it though. To have a place for him to sit and be comfortable, besides his bed and wheelchair, is amazing. It's something we "normal" people take for granted. Imagine if you had one chair to sit in the entire day. Ouch. We also took the chair camping, and it was comfortable enough for him to sleep in. I think he loves it!
