DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To assist a four-year-old child with muscular dystrophy with floor sitting. The child is unable to sit independently, so a large plastic laundry basket is used as a positioning aid and also keeps toys nearby, enabling him to interact with his peers. For additional support, the basket can be placed against a wall. MATERIALS: Laundry basket. AUTHOR: Howell, E. TITLE: Assistive Technology Ideas that Work.
