Physical Therapy: Sliding On A Scooter Board
Try using the Rug Rat Scooter Board on a gentle ramp for a fun sliding game. You can use an outdoor ramp designed for wheelchair access to buildings or you can construct an indoor/outdoor ramp with a long board laid over one or two stairs to the ground. Lift the child on and then let them slide! Make sure you keep physical contact with the child to ensure that they stay on the ramp all the way to the bottom.
