Are you looking for fun therapeutic exercises for your OT/PT/SLP clients?

Try the Makey Makey!

The Makey Makey device looks like an old school Nintendo Controller; it is a electronic invention device that works by opening and closing a circuit. Just attach any conductive object to the Makey Makey board with alligator clips and connect to the internet to trigger actions to another device! For example, through simple movements with your body, you can trigger sounds, or an action on a software program.
