Raggedy Annie gets Therapy

 I brought in a raggedy annie doll to role model position changes and help my clients let go of the handle during movement. The girls did a good job of holding the doll in front of them while the horse walked so that they could work on postural control without grasping the handle. The little girl shown here is usually unwilling to let go of the handle during the walk but after having her move the glitter wand up and down stationary she did it during the walk.
My other client tolerated (after much coaxing) the prone over barrel position. She got a kick out of my doing therapy with the doll , having the doll in prone position, too. I think that the doll is going to be quite useful in many different ways.
