OT/PT Tip of the Day: Pool Noodle Quick Fix
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Do you have any students who need just a little extra reminder of where the chair ends? Maybe an external cue of where to put their hips? Grab a pool noodle. Measure it to fit the seat of the chair and cut off the excess. Use some duct tape and strap it to the chair. That’s it – for just a dollar now you have a classroom chair with that extra cue to help students with body awareness issues or balance concerns. Give it a try!
