Stress Free in Speech

Last week in speech therapy we made stress balls while targeting a variety of goals such as: receptive language, expressive language, social pragmatic and articulation! The kiddos LOVED making the stress balls and were very motivated to work toward their targeted goals. Talk about fun and function!

Fitness Friday: Half Kneel

Did you know that between 2-2.5 years old a child can stand up through half kneel without using their hands for assistance?

HOW TO: Have your child transition from the floor through a half kneel position without using his/her arms for assist. If child is unable to perform without support from their hands, they may place one hand on the floor or on their knee instead. This exercise is functional and improves lower extremity, abdominal strength, and balance.
