Its almost time for the OT conference in Massachusetts MAOT on October 2. I will be presenting with OTR/L Monica Wu . Monica owns Reinbow Therapy in Acton and also works at Windrush Equitation Center in Boxford.
She created an awesome sensory trail that has lots of objects for the children to find while riding such as the bears shown in the tree. This works on figure ground discrimination, language and object identification.
She also has the children check off the items seen on the trail. This is a great way to work on scanning, pencil grasp and visual matcing during a hippotherapy session.
Barbara Smith, M.S., OTR/L is author of, The Recycling Occupational Therapist
