Early Intervention can help with physical, cognitive and sensory development, and can help to maximise a child’s future potential.

Play with Purpose

The modular floor based Early Activity System is designed to assist children improve their physical, cognitive and sensory abilities by encouraging play in four key therapeutic positions and one transition which will form the basis for later abilities.

Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System back lying
Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System back lying support
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.
Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System tummy lying
Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System tummy lying play
Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System tummy lying support
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.

Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System floor sitting sensory development
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.
Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System hands and knee support
Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System hand and knee playing
Leckey Squiggles Early Activity System hands and knee supports sensory development
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.
