Teaching Pull-To-Stand In Three Easy Stages

1. Sit the child on a bolster, seat or small physioball in front of a steady surface to pull up on. The child's feet should be firmly planted on the floor. Let the child grasp your hands and rise to standing. 2. Once that step is mastered, try starting the child from a kneeling position. Help them bring one foot forward first and then the other foot as they rise. 3. Then try starting from a sitting position.

It is especially appropriate for children who have general developmental delays or Down syndrome.
