I was curious how students would grasp the paintbrushes, since their pencil grasps are quite unique. Sure enough, even placing the paper on a vertical surface didn't promote a thumb to two-finger grasp unless the student was already comfortable using that more mature grasp. However, their control of the paintbrush was good.
|We worked with two students at a time. Funny thing how their pictures ended up so similar...|
|No, not two watches. One of the bands is a locator in case the student becomes lost.|
The SLP reined in my natural tendency to hand all the supplies to the students before they asked for anything. A very good opportunity for us to reinforce polite requests and correctly identifying materials used in the activity.
