Activities to try to achieve this target...
- Stretch HC's hands first, bringing them into midline and taking off his hand splints before offering him different objects to explore.
- If HC has his tray, place this onto his chair and the items onto his tray so that they are easily accessible for him and encourage him to move his own arms downwards to explore the items.
- Provide HC with different small objects for him to explore with his hands i.e. play dough, spiky balls, squish balls, sensory bags etc. Encourage him to explore and move his hands to grasp these items as independently as possible.
- Encourage HC to move his own arms and hands by placing interesting materials on his lap for him to explore i.e. Space blanket, furry material.
