Cortical Visual Impairment and Rikki The Rooster
By: Renata Bursten, Dragonfly Staff

Ricki the Rooster is one of the most popular switch adapted toys. His bright colours make him easier for a child with a cortical visual impairment to see. To help even more try putting Rikki down on a dark carpet, towel, or tablecloth. The contrast makes his colours really pop out!

Sensory Integration and the Mini Massager

One of the best ways to use the Mini Massager is to place on different parts of the child's body either to help learn to name body parts, or just to become aware of the whole body. A good way to give kinesthetic and body position feedback to more immobile children. The Mini Massager can also be used on the hands or on and around the mouth to decrease hypersensitivity and tactile defensiveness. This can often help a child who is having trouble eating textured food eat more normally.
