Sit-ups to Strengthen Abdominals

Special thanks to Jane-Anne at MiraclesSudan for permission to use photos.

Sit-ups are a wonderful way to strengthen the abdominal and trunk muscles. These photos show what occupation therapy is all about- using activities to motivate the child to reach, visually attend, use hands bilaterally and strengthen all at the same time.
