Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System (EAS)

Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System is a versatile positioning system to assist caregivers and therapist in helping children learn different developmental positions. Squiggles Early Activity System meets all the postural and comfort requirements of a seating system for young children.

 

The EAS is a colorful set of flexible and versatile positional supports that can be secured onto a Velcro floor mat.

 

The system comes with an easy-to-follow illustrated guide which shows a range of effective, best practice therapy activities that can be used by both therapists and families. The EAS helps develop key physical, sensory, cognitive and transitional developmental goals such as trunk control, head control, eye-hand coordination, spatial awareness, balance and strength.

 

The Early Activity System includes a floor mat, sitting support, trunk wedge, head support, 2 positioning straps, 2 medium rolls, 2 small rolls and a carrying bag. The floor mat is machine washable and all other components are wipe clean.

 

Features

  • Machine washable floor mat
  • Wipe clean components
  • Supine, prone and Sitting positions
  • Enhances early intervention programs
  • Includes Activity Development Program Book

25 years of European experience and craftsmanship result in an adaptable system to support the posture of children with complex special needs including: Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, SMA, Spina Bifida, Arthrogryphosis, and other neurological conditions.

Back Lying (Supine)

The supine position (or back lying) is the first developmental stage for babies. In this posture baby learns the building blocks for more complicated postures.

Back lying supports physical development through strengthening neck, tummy, shoulder and hip flexors as children have to lift head, arms and legs up against gravity.   Back lying supports cognitive development as it is the first stage in  the awareness of cause and effect play.   Back lying supports sensory development as this is the position in which it is easiest for children to focus their eyes.

 

 


Tummy Lying (Prone)

Tummy Lying (Prone) is next.  The Early Activity System’s modular components mean you can easily adapt the system to suit the posture you are working on.

Tummy lying supports physical development by strengthening neck, shoulders, arms and back, and is an important foundation for the transition to sitting.   Tummy lying supports cognitive development as hands and eyes start to learn to work together, and spatial awareness is emerging.   Tummy lying supports sensory development by providing a sense of security while improving visual focusing and tracking.

 

 


Sitting

Sitting is encouraged through the use of the horseshoe support, but additional back and head support can be provided using the rolls and straps for those who find this a challenging position.

Leckey Squiggles EAS Sitting 3

Floor sitting supports physical development by stabilising the pelvis and trunk, allowing the arms and hands to be free.   Floor sitting supports cognitive development by enabling children to realise that when upright, their world is 3-dimensional.   Floor sitting supports sensory development, as the ability to use their hands more freely enables children to explore a wider variety of textures, shapes and sizes.

 

 


Hands and Knees

Four Point kneeling and the transitions needed between each position is the final progression before crawling and pulling to stading.

Hands and knees supports physical development because children are supporting their body weight against gravity, strengthening muscles which may be used for movement later on.   Hands and knees supports cognitive development by helping children to understand the relationship between their body and their environment – spatial awareness.   Hands and knees supports sensory development by encouraging weight bearing through extended arms and open palms.
