We are finding sea creatures in a water bin! This is a fun activity to kick off a beautiful summer morning and practice our fine motor skills.
Reviewing the session plan is key to keeping on track while working on our goals! Many of our friends at the Boston Ability Center benefit from a first-then visual schedule to maintain attention and ease transition between treatment activities. Current plan below: “First swing, then hammock!”
Toddler tummy time on the boat swing is a great way to blend physical therapy and speech therapy. One kiddo is focusing on turn taking and the other is practicing prone positioning. Socially motivating and focusing on two sets of goals! 👊🏻
This morning we are digging in our garden to find some carrots! If you think our indoor “garden” is neat, you should stop by and see BAC’s outdoor garden!
Cars make articulation therapy so much fun!
It is that time of year when kids LOVE to be outside (no matter how hot it is!) and parks, especially swings are a favorite activity!
When swinging, practice pumping legs to swing yourself. Kick as you come forward (“kick the sky” or give feet high fives) and bend knees as you swing back (“turtle legs”).
See how many times you can kick the sky and have turtle legs in a row!
Our volunteers not only spend dedicated hours to BAC being a huge support to staff, but they also make work a lot of fun. Learn more about our volunteers below and if you are interested in joining our wonderful team contact Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
