July 20: One of the best diversions for a manual tactile sensory-seeking student is to place a 24-inch piece of yarn in the student’s hands and invite the student to manipulate it at will. – John Taylor, Ph.D.

July 18: A fun pool game: Use ping pong balls as “fishes” and give each child a small strainer to “catch” them in. Caught fish are put into a container and when the container is full, dump it over so the fish “get away” and have to be caught again! – Barbara Sher, MA, OTR, Early Intervention Games from CA
