Today was the first time I had an opportunity to involve a client in raking manure. I did the raking but had him place both hands on the pole and he did most of the lifting to reach the wheelbarrow. This 6 year old on the spectrum has low tone, postural control and body awareness. He started leaning on me while mounting the steps and when I moved away he collapsed onto the ground. So it would be fantastic for his body awareness to independently shovel and I think he understood why this needed to be done.
