Play Tip!

All ball use tips apply to all sizes of balls. To improve balance, try sitting your child crosslegged on the ball, hold their hips firmly, and roll the ball from the centre out in all directions. Watch your child's reactions to see that they correct for the tip no matter what direction the ball is rolled in. This size is usually best for children the size of a typical child of 4 - 8 years.

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. The feet must swing to the side, then the child moves to an all-fours kneeling position, and then pulls to stand. This activity helps children develop strong shoulder muscles and general stability. It is especially appropriate for children who have general developmental delays or Down syndrome.
