7 Best Therapy Bag Tools
Being a mobile therapist can be tricky! This therapist brings a bag of tricks on wheels wherever I go! Here are my favorite therapy tools that are both easy to travel with and consistently successful with my kiddos.
1. Thera-Putty Theraputty promotes fine motor strength and can help work on a child’s pincer grasp. Fun trick: hide pennies, pony beads or other small manipulative objects inside and have the kiddos hunt for treasure!
2. Broken crayons / Crayon Rocks: Long pencils and markers give children too much space to learn an inefficient grasp. Try using a 1 inch broken crayon, pip squeak markers, Flip crayons (from Handwriting Without Tears) or crayon rocks to help train those little fingers.
6. Timer: Have a kiddo that needs a little support transitioning? Or a reminder to stay focused? Try using a timer. You can use the timer on your phone for an extra auditory cue or one with lights for added visual support. My favorite changes colors from green (go), yellow (2 minute warning), and red (stop).
