Embracing the Student With Duchenne: Recess While Ambulatory
Traditional playground equipment unfortunately creates many serious medical risks for the child with Duchenne, but he or she still needs to be included with friends.
Try setting up fun activities on the ground like:a bean bag toss, blowing bubbles, chalk, card games, board games, trading card games, playdough, magnets, imaginary play, kid magazines, rock-paper-scissors…
Also try a rotating “Buddy System” where classmates take turns being his or her recess buddy for a week and they can come up with fun ideas together.
