Thanksgiving Week Hippotherapy

videoI am always looking for ways to promote bearing weight on hands . This little girl avoids this and often curls up her fingers to avoid touch to her palms. But she tolerated when I pushed her hands down on the sqeaky toys I sewed inside a felt bag.

videoIt was great to hear this litle girl vocalize. I know that this doesn't exactly look like a turkey but I think it passed the sensory fun test. She used both hands together nicely and pulling the clips strengthens hands.  Quite a few kids liked using this "remove the turkey feathers toy" this week.....vibration and shiny lights usually work well......
