OT/PT Corner: Alternative Seating Options
[Source: Dinosaur PT]
As a Pediatric Physical Therapist, I am always looking for new ways to encourage carry over of the work during our individual PT sessions. Especially in regards to postural awareness, trunk strength, & promoting lower body weight bearing to facilitate upper body activation.
Alternative seating options can provide opportunities for movement while promoting postural control, balance, coordination, strength & endurance. When a child is actively engaging their proximal muscle groups they have more control in their distal muscle groups, essential for many classroom activities.
