Today we are playing in tall kneel on the bosu to work on postural control and balance!
You don’t always need to use fancy equipment to work towards therapy goals. A great home carryover activity is using bubble wrap to target two word phrases, such as: “more pop!”; “my turn!”; “big bubble!”; and “Where’s more?”
This is a great fine motor activity, too!
Physical therapist Jenna Colton works with her kiddo utilizing jumping jacks (20 reps!) to target coordination while having fun!
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!
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.
Feed the Woozle was the perfect activity for this ST/OT co-treat. Speech therapy worked on prepositions, while OT worked on handwriting skills.
In PT, one fun activity can incorporate gross motor skills, motor planning, balance, and crossing midline all at the same time. Pool noodles can be drumsticks and a therapy ball can be a drum!
Nothing like some scented markers to motivate us to practice our speech sounds! Comment with your favorite scent!
