    Does anyone have any resources (or point me in the direction of resources) regarding the benefits of pushing, pulling, and using heavier weight items? Also, any ideas for activities and materials that can be used in 0-3 classrooms.  Thank you!!

    Hello Adrienne,

    Heavy lifting, pushing and pulling activities are a great way to provide input to a child's sensory system
    Our website has some great resources for setting children with unique sensory needs up for success.


    I hope that you find it helpful.

    If you do a search online for "Heavy Work" you will find some great ideas (usually OT approved).
