The UTHSC Masters of OT students recently completed a number of awesome media projects! For the assignment, each student was given the name of a common household item. They were instructed to design a creative, appropriate therapy activity for a patient with a specific diagnosis. They did an amazing job! This media project was submitted by Rochelle. Her common house hold item was a tennis ball!
-Open the mouth by squeezing the ball
-Place coins or buttons in the mouth using the opposite hand
This activity addresses fine motor skills, bilateral skills, hand strength & motor coordination and addresses tactile awareness while providing proprioceptive input.
