OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
Here's another tool to help with seated attention during school: a therapy band. A therapy band is similar to a standard work out resistance band. While I ordered this one from a therapeutic website, www.abilitations.com, you can easily go to Target or again, order off Amazon. I would suggest medium resistance!
All you have to do is tie the band around the front two legs of the chair and you've installed a very effective tool for sustained regulation. Your child will be able to kick against the band or even wrap their feet in the band for deep touch, calming, input. I do remind children that the band should be quiet and not to be snapped during writing tasks. Most children enjoy the band so much that this ground rule is easily followed.
