Do Like

Do Like offers interactive gross motor activities to help children improve on their postural control and balance. This game can be included as part of a strengthening program for positively impacting a child’s fine motor control, body awareness and balance.

With Do Like, the child can enjoy replicating a body movement or a sustained position by listening and/or reading a given instruction. The teacher and/or occupational therapist can choose from a variety of specified postures or movements for the child to perform throughout each learning session.

The instructor can also select tasks for the child to be asked, such as:

-Perform single postures or simple movements (e.g. “Wave hello with your right arm” or “Raise your left arm”)

-Make combination movements (e.g. “Raise both arms & stand on your left foot”)

-Follow instructions for sequential movements (e.g. “First, raise your left hand, then wave hello with your right arm”)

o   Hold a move (e.g. “Stand on your left foot for 5 seconds”)

o   Repeat a move (e.g. “Hop on your right foot 3 times”)

An avatar can also be chosen within the platform settings to become the lead trainer for the children to follow. If selected, the avatar can give the children instructions to imitate a demonstrated body movement or posture.

Throughout the game play, a teacher can increase the level of difficulty and manage sequencing by adding in multi-step directions. For example, the requested body movement sequence can be, “First, raise your left arm then stand on your right foot”.

Lastly, the teacher can determine the time required for the completion of each exercise, thus configuring the pace of a physical activity for motor control and postural stability.

So why wait any longer? Get the class moving and grooving with Do Like!
