10/14 – visiting Cooley Dickinson OT clinic

Today was a chance for the students to see the kind of equipment we use at our pediatric outpatient OT clinic. There were lots of swings and a “hug machine” to look over, and  we looked through lots of catalogs that are full of equipment ideas. It’s important to see the range of equipment that’s already out there on the market,  and what is all costs, as we start to figure out how we will offer help to Nonotuck in Northampton and Children’s House in Holyoke. The assignment for this week is for the students to write an initial  proposal for how we could help the Nonotuck pre-school improve the play opportunities in their big “activity room”. Next week we will have each student make a presentation of their initial proposals, and then start to refine and combine ideas  to make our plan.
