Positioning for Play: Interactive Activities to Enhance Movement and Sensory Exploration, Second Edition
Publication Date: 2010
Publisher: Therapy Skill Builders
Young children learn best from engaging in regular movement and activities with family and friends in a supportive environment; the child develops motor, sensory, cognitive, language, communication, and social skills. This expanded collection of practical reproducible activities is designed for use by early interventionists, early childhood educators, occupational therapists, physical therapist, speech pathologists, and community health nurses who work with families with young children who have or are at risk for developmental delays.
The activity sheets, grouped into ten sections according to developmental position, are designed to illustrate ways that caregivers can hold, position, and play with a child while using toys, objects, materials, and family members that are available. Furthermore, the sheets demonstrate proper body mechanics for both child and caregiver. Space is provided for notes. Includes a CD with reproducible activity sheets.
