Fun With Therapy

'Fun with Therapy' is for various levels of abilities.

Any pictures shown on therapy are only to give a general idea.

We would recommend that you always consult with your own Physio and Occupational Therapist before trying out new ideas.

Experience of other parents is that therapy goes much better and more is accomplished when you work at your childs pace rather than forcing your child to complete a series of exercises under protest.

You should never make your child do something that they are uncomfortable with.

Sometimes it is good to have a short rest from therapy!

Pudding Paint

Below is a recipe for pudding paint, the idea being that you can get your hands or fingers in the texture which is thicker than paint and use them to paint or mark.

Using A Roll | Print |

Ideas for using a Roll

Try to ensure the roll is the correct height so that when in a sitting position your child's feet reach the floor with hips and knees at right angles.

Any movement exercises must be done at a slow and controlled pace to be effective.

Never leave your child unattended on the Roll.
