Sitting on a ball while someone touches you with a cuddly toy
Your child is sitting on a Skippy ball or therapeutic ball (see sitting on a ball )
While he is sitting on a ball you can touch your child with all kinds of materials. Start with his feet and “walk” with cuddly toys or different kinds if balls upwards over his body.
Your child is meant to remain seated while you touch him. You should touch him firmly and evidently, but do not push so hard so that your child tumbles off the ball. Find out what your child likes and try and turn it into a game.
