More Than A Gym on Instagram: "Don’t let the ball fall: a dual task challenge!

NeuroFit Kids | Bianca Mendonça, PT, DPT, PCS, CLC| Carlsbad, CA on Instagram: "A few tips and considerations ✅ note size of ball here. The larger the exercise ball, the more stability provided for the child. A smaller ball was not the right fit for this little one. Be mindful of height as we do want the trunk and shoulder girdle muscles to be active ✅child should have already started some level of side-stepping with support of arms (cruising) or practice of lateral weight shifting as tolerated before progressing forward. ✅ If child is not ready for this, consider starting with pre-walking exercises using a therapy ball instead (go to my profile and easily find my reel on that!) ___ Hi 👋 I’m a board-certified pediatric doctor of physical therapy who’s obsessed with tiny humans and all Fitness, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Instagram, Exercises, Walking Exercise, Exercise, Gross Motor, Pediatric Physical Therapy

Starfish Therapies on Instagram: "Fun new activity that works on core strength as well as weight bearing through arms. We have been focusing on the weight bearing for kids who have altered tone in their arms as well as kids who have general weakness. The goal was to try to get the ball to the other person’s peanut to score a point. I can tell you I was definitely out of breath when we finished! The further out on the peanut they are the harder it is. Having them switch hands will also work on bilateral coordination and timing/reactions.
