Paint Roller Ring Stack for Children with Autism 1m59s

Paint Roller Ring Stack for Children with Autism

Individuals with autism and/or sensory processing disorders may find it challenging to engage in hand activities. The "paint roller ring stack" is fun, often motivating people because it meets their sensory needs while developing eye hand coordination and visual attention. It is made by wedging a paint roller handle inside a bottle; then secure in place with duct tape. As you see in the videos, it can be used in a variety of ways to meet the different needs of individuals.

Smart geese know how to cross the street1m41s

Smart geese know how to cross the street

Why did the flock of geese cross the street? So that they can be caught on video and become Internet sensation! These very clever geese wait for the traffic light to change before crossing the street in front of the Isabella Gardner Museum in Boston. Such model citizens! Soon enough, one by one they start crossing and the cars stop for these feathery pedestrians! They look like the Beatles on that cross walk, only without the flair pants. If you are wondering why they didn’t just fly across, here’s an idea. Walking uses far less energy than flying. Conserving energy for fleeing danger and long migrations helps them survive. Geese tend to walk to their feeding site from water. Since geese are grazing animals, they will do more walking than flying. Still, it is one amazing sight to behold!

These activities provide "resistance" and heavy pressure sensory stimulation to muscles and joints. The video shows how motivated and fun it is to get sensory stimulation while also strengthening hands and developing coordination. Please visit my website for more information at RecyclingOT .com
