Nesting Tables can be used in many ways to support therapeutic activities. The following describes a few examples:
- Use one table as a seat and one table as a support surface for play or fine motor activities. The child can remain seated, or the activity can require the child to move from sit-to-stand.
- Pull-to-stand and then stand with the support of the appropriate height table and/or cruise around the table for play.
- Stagger the height and distances of the tables to encourage multi-level support surface cruising and negotiation.
- Use one of the tables as a footrest to promote alignment and lower extremity weight-bearing when the child's feet do not touch the ground.
- Use a single bench to practice ascending and/or descending a step or side-stepping up and down.
- Stagger the heights of the tables to simulate steps and practice going up and down a set of stairs, crawling or stepping.
- Use tables as variable height tables or stands to even up activity spaces.
