PlayPacks have a wealth of practical ideas and fun activities to inspire and guide you as you work with the child. The back of each card has easy to follow directions and tips, while the front of the card has clear illustrations and fun titles to entice children’s participation. Both packs include information on correct posture and give guidance for adjusting the games. The balanced, thorough content was created with an occupational therapist whose specialty is working with children with special needs.
