ABL manufactures classroom furniture designed to put the student’s brain into its most optimal learning state.  All of our educational equipment has been created with neuroscience best practices in mind, which results in improved student performance, enhanced effectiveness of curricula, and children’s energy channeled toward learning.

ABL active learning and sensory equipment provides a non-distracting, silent way to allow children to move, fidget, wake their brains up and stay engaged and focused in the classroom. This makes it easy for schools to accommodate all learners, and keep the focus on serving the needs of the whole child. Action Based Learning aligns with the CDC framework for addressing health in schools, The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child, or WSCC model.To learn more about the science behind movement and learning educational furniture, check out Action Based Learning Training Academy

Brain Based Movement:

Promotes low intensity steady state movement (LISS), crossing the midline, optimizes blood flow and oxygen to the brain, & activates BDNF, coined "Miracle Gro" for the brain by Dr. John Ratey. BDNF activates the brain in the process known as neurogenesis- the growth of new brain cells. 

Variety Movement Desks Features:

Manufactured in the USA -All Variety Movement Desks are steel welded and built for high frequency use in school settings. Desks are designed to hold up against even the most "active" students. Includes 10 yr direct from mfg extended warranty and factory direct discounts for schools.
