PT Corner: Vertical Surface Activities for Gross Motor Skills
[Source: Pink Oatmeal]
One of my favorite ways to do therapy with kids was using a vertical surface. There are a ton of benefits to working on a vertical surface including wrist extension, spatial awareness, visual attention, shoulder and elbow stability, core strength etc. That being said, I also LOVED to use vertical surface activities to incorporate gross motor skills with varied positions.
