Describes construction of a prone positioner using 24 by 36 inches of Orthoplast bent around and fastened at the corners, creating a 30 degree angle (to allow for the child's weight and compression), with the opening filled with dense foam. An 8 by 20 inch piece of Orthoplast is molded into a cone shape and fastened near the bottom end. Both the "board" and the cone, which the child straddles, are padded with foam and covered with lambswool. Straps with velcro fastening hold the child on the board. Includes photographs.
