Increasing Hand Strength
A lot of children who come to All Care Therapies for occupational therapy have weakness in their hands and core. Exercises and activities are incorporated into the sessions to help get their hands and tummies stronger but there is only so much the therapists can do in a session. Children need to participate in activities at home and at school to build their muscles so that they can climb the monkey bars, hold their pencil the correct way, open and close buttons and snaps, and so much more!
Handee Band Therapy Band Exercise Program was created by occupational therapists and focuses on core and upper body strength. The great part is this board not only works on strengthening but also fine motor and visual skills that are so important for a child to practice!
