Including Preschoolers

Head Start Body Start presented a webinar on including preschoolers with special needs in active play today. This webinar had lots of great ideas - some therapists would be familiar with and perhaps some are new information. Here are a few tips that I found helpful:
  • "teach children how to stop before you teach them how to go" - Diane Craft PhD
  • cover balloons in panty hose to prevent any broken pieces if it pops and to prevent children from biting the balloons
  • put eye bolts on each side of the room, clip a clothes line onto the eye bolts when you need a quick room divider for games or to hang objects from
  • several tips on modifying lessons
You can download the handouts from the webinar here.
