Vibrating Ring Stack and Stringing Activity for Developmental Disabilities
I attached a dowel to a vibrating cushion to make a vibrating ring stack. Vibration motivates the blind individual with developmental disabilities shown in the video- to engage in a bilateral repetitive fine motor task (in plain English, using his hands together) . He currently does best using large rings since he is a bit impulsive and impatient.
I also attached a long fabric cord for stringing smaller rings. Hopefully, he will develop the motor control and patience to manipulate stringing these, too. The woman in the video is able to discriminate size in order to place the larger rings on the ring stack and smaller rings on the fabric cord. She likes a cognitive challenge!
