Lucky seeks a lot of movement!! When he is sitting while eating, watching telly, doing activities, he is always bouncing, jumping, flapping!! Our amazing OT explained that this is due to the poor registration he receives from muscles, joints, and tendons and from his vestibular system. In order to maintain an upright posture and stay seated he has a need to move, thus stimulating the brain to receive more sensory messages.
To help Lucky achieve this, he has a therapy ball to sit on while doing seater activities along with and indoor trampoline as well as an outdoor trampoline, which have all had a very positive affect on his concentration.
