#WisdomWednesday, Carol Riccio, MS, PT


1. What is your favorite toy you use in therapy?

I really like long strings of beads. To avoid choking hazards, I recommend beads that are molded to the string (pictured above.) There are beads light enough for babies to hold , fun enough that older children can play dress up and malleable enough to make into small rings or big enough to jump through.

2. Words of Wisdom…?

Help your child develop good posture and core strength by encouraging them to sit on the floor with both feet to the front “crisscross” or both feet to the same side “side sit”. And remember no “W-sit” .
