|Ronan's car track toy|
Ronan has several favorite toys right now that are luckily ones that his therapists are also having him play with. These toys all work on various skills that we are working on with Ronan. This first one is a track that you put cars on to travel down. What I love about it is watching Ronan try to put other objects down it. He will put blocks, balls, and just about any other toy down this track. I've even watched him try to put a book down the track! It also encourages him to reach and manipulate. Ronan has to pivot and change positions to gather the cars and position the track. He has to problem solve.

A third toy that I highly recommend is a board with gears. This is something that Ronan's school has, and that we also have. This toy has both small and large gears. Ronan has to manipulate the gears to be in the right orientation and place them on the board so they interlock. He can then try to spin them. He loves this toy! He could put gears up and take them down all day. We also work on putting the gears away in a container, and with taking them out of the container. This toy is a favorite of our OT, and for developing Ronan's fine motor skills as wall as helping him learn to follow directions.
