Support Bench

In September, when TSBVI was helping us with Jayden's Active Learning Environments our Representative from Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services, Division for Blind Services joined us. She was very excited about Active Learning and becoming a part of Jayden's Action Team. She decided that Jayden needed to get the Support Bench, which is another piece of Active Learning equipment. They purchased the Support Bench for Jayden.

 
Jayden will be able to lay over this bench on all fours. It also comes with casters so that he can push it around. This is used to encourage crawling and strengthen his upper body and head control.
 

 
 
We received the support bench in October, just before colder weather. The floor was too cold to begin using it on the floor, but I did start using it to strengthen his head control and upper body.
 
 

 
 
As soon as the weather got warmer, I moved him over to the floor. He started scooting it around almost right away. He seems to enjoy this activity.
