The new client had increased muscle tone and tight hips but she was able to straddle facing forwards and backwards and bear weight with assist on open palms (with help to keep them open). then she surprised me by doing the Velcro bottle activity all by herself-she seemed to know what to do without any help at all. For those of you who don't know- the Velcro bottle has little toys attached with Velcro that the children can pull off and insert inside. I actually used a smaller one today (the size of a drinking bottle) with a smaller handle that fits nicely into a 2 year old's hand. But the larger ones made of dish washer soap is great for older kids.
