The What’s In Your Hand Challenge

Youtube has some great blindfold video going by that name. But I played with my student OT. I have cerebral palsy and she does not.IMG_0583.JPGI was blindfolded and had to feel 10 shapes. I got them all correctly on my first go. On the next round of shapes I got eight out of 10.

The following night Jessica wore the blindfold. She got all shapes right but only 5 out of ten for other objects. I could tell that she wasn’t peeking.

There are studies showing CP decreases the sense of touch, but this was still a fun exercise. I suggest I did better because:

I practiced more

I have been working of touch as Jessica does not think so much about it

I have seen the objects more
