Balance Boards And Balance Discs: Why Not Have Fun While Developing Coordination Skills And Alleviating Fears?
Balance boards and discs play a unique role in sensory integration therapy.
Many children with sensory processing disorders share the difficulty
of not having good balancing skills and, sometimes, an intense fear of
activities which put them in an "off-balance" position.
These difficulties and fears will translate into problems learning and
performing multiple motor tasks, playing with their peers, and
participating in physical education or organized sports. If you have, or
were, one of these kids, you may know about, or fear, the labeling and
horrible comments children will make if you are/were an uncoordinated
child! Let me help protect your child from this.
The key is to identify these children as early as
possible, so we can begin to improve their skills before it has severely
affected their self-esteem and physical performance in life. There are
many ways we, as therapists, can help children work on their gross motor
skills, balancing skills, bilateral coordination, fears of their feet
leaving the ground, or difficulties dealing with unsteady/uneven surfaces.
Balancing boards & discs are just one of many fun
therapeutic tools. Now, you too can have one of these right in your own
home! No need to bring your child to therapy 2x per week just for that.
Use these boards at home for some creative, yet invaluable therapy
which your child desperately needs. (Don't misunderstand, I am not saying
give up therapy, just suggesting a way to work on these skills at home
Using a balance board or disc for therapeutic
training and practice will help your child overcome fears and develop the
necessary skills for normal childhood activities which require good
balance and coordination.
With a combination of exercises, physical or occupational
therapy, practice, and using equipment such as balance boards and discs,
your child may finally be running, jumping, climbing, walking across
unsteady/uneven surfaces at the playground, playing sports, and riding
bikes with their peers.
If you desire these skills for your child (or your child
desires them) and you want to help them with their "therapy" right from
the comfort of your own home, then a balance board is just what you need!
Your child will love it because it is fun to use AND
because they will gain the balance and coordination skills necessary to
keep up with their peers. No one should be left behind!
