Positioning

A child who has a positioning schema positions objects, which is very important to the child.

A child who has a positioning schema may:

  • Put things on their heads.
  • Prefer custard next to sponge, not over it.
  • Lie under the table.
  • Organise objects or themselves in a particular way.

 

If a child has a positioning schema parents/carers may like to provide:

  • Hats.
  • Sheets.
  • Bricks, cars.
  • Houses, shelves.
  • Allow them to position in their way.
