The Stacking Peg Board Set is great for development in all areas!
Articulation/Speech: The pegs are great tokens to give a child as reinforcement within articulation activities. Have the child imitate various words and sounds and earn pegs to make a tall tower.
Language: Your child can learn colors and counting with these manipulatives. Place them in various parts of your home to work on positional concepts (under the table, on the chair), and forming 2-4 word sentences by having your child make verbal requests for them. You can also work on matching concepts, and same/different.
Pragmatics: Turn-taking skills and joint attention.
Fine Motor/Visual Motor: To place these pegs on the pegboard and create a stack, visual perception and visual motor skills are strengthened in addition to grasp. Children can use bilateral coordination to put two or more pegs together with the pegs held in their hands instead of on the pegboard. Want more of a challenge? Have children place a small object like a marble or small block on top of each peg!
Sensory: Hide the pegs in a sensory bin of rice/beans, water, or shaving cream for some tactile fun. Or involve their vestibular and proprioceptive systems by having the child lay on their belly over a therapy ball or scooter board to collect scattered pegs and insert them into the board.
Gross Motor: These are great for picking up with your toes to strengthen the intrinsic muscles of the feet and balancing on one foot. You can also sort them during an obstacle course or work on trunk rotation while sitting on a therapy ball or while straddling a bolster.
