Bringing Two Hands Together In The Midline
By: Renata Bursten, Dragonfly Staff




Look for toys that offer many grasping points like the Nobbly Wobbly, the Winkle, or the Skwish. Place the child on his or her back. Offer the toy to the side of the child, moving the toy slowly towards the child's midline. Alternate sides, concentrating on the weaker side if there is one. Gradually the child will begin reaching out with both hands. This is especially helpful for premature babies, children with hypotonia, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy , and general developmental delays.
