Over the years I've learned to be prepared to make any animal. Got a request for a lion, and here it is!
Focus of the session: Postural Control, Dissociation, In-Hand Manipulation, & Strengthening.
POSTURAL CONTROL: 🤸♂️ Taped the paper plate to the wall and had the kiddo stand on a balance board while coloring the orange.
DISSOCIATION: Stabilizing the forearm and wrist on the wall while coloring to facilitate improved coordination and dissociation of digits.
IN-HAND MANIPULATION: Shifting paper while cutting paper.
STRENTHENING: Get the kiddos into quadruped on the floor to reach for the brown pieces and place on the paper plate.
and BAM you have yourself a lion [and an improving kiddo].
What's your favorite paper plate animal?! #thefitot#therapistlife#thefitottravels
We are so proud of our client, Emmalie, as she completed a lateral prop to sit test. With the help of electrical stimulation from #Xcite, our newest FES device, her movements are smoother and the electrical stimulation gives her strength to push herself up and maintain her sitting balance!
