Push Walls are a great proprioceptive activity for your sensory seeking AND sensory avoidant students. Each student will have different needs and therapy objectives, but the Push Wall is a universal tool to address proprioceptive concerns.
To achieve the intended outcome of the Push Wall, it’s important that you install correctly and know how to direct your students on proper use.
Some signs that your students may need a proprioceptive activity include biting, hitting, climbing, jumping, hyperextending joints, and excessive roughness. You may also notice disengagement while walking or sitting in their chair. They may appear to be more clumsy than usual, bumping into walls or objects. They may be slumped over and seemingly too tired to sit up straight.
