OT Tip of the Week: Zippering a Problem? Try This!
[Source: Pediatric Occupational Therapy Tips]
Here is a quick and easy idea to help a child manipulate a zipper on a backpack, lunchbox, or jacket. All you need is a medium to large sized split key ring.
The zipper pull will need to have a small hole in it. Attach the key ring to the zipper pull.
This will make it easier to grasp and pull the zipper. With a little practice, your child will be zipping and unzipping independently!
