Pincer Grip

Today in therapy we played a blindfold tactile game for developing pincer grip.

I sat at the desk and put on my blindfold before I was told what we were doing. The OT then put some buttons in Play-doh and I had to feel around and pick them up only using my left hand. After that I had to drop them on the table, but I was not told how many buttons there were. I had to try and identify when there were no more buttons.

Another blindfold game we played was where my OT put some buttons in Play-doh and with my palm on the Play-doh I had to guess how many buttons there were. It was very hard!

Thirdly, I had to crawl blindfolded in her sensory room feeling for two tactile balls.

my comments later were:

  • I could not feel the ball but when my finger brushed past the soft toy I felt that.
  • I felt the piano, curtain and mat the second time.
  • Maybe I felt some of those items as I like feeling soft and fluffy things blindfolded.

Friday is a special event: I will be blindfolded at the door of her sensory room in shorts T shirt and bare feet and have to go through an obstacle course.
