    Hi, just bought one of these hover balls. Great for children with CP or other disabilities who love football but can sometimes find it frustrating to kick. This easily glides across the floor- just purchased one for work. Can be used in walkers, or bench sitting- child on low bench with feet flat on the floor (with support given by a carer) if needed and of coarse a friend to pass the ball. They need a more inclusive video clip though! http://www.jmldirect.com/at-home/home-accessories/hover-ball/?gclid=CJ-moNSeqcsCFQoKwwoduBAIAw

    Glad its useful! I was at my friends house who is a paediatric Ot and she just kicked one to me having purchased it for her work in a special school. Hasten to say we have one at work now, simple idea but works brilliantly. I'm not a physiotherapist so can't give specific advice but have lots of experience of working with children with SEN as a t.a before to my role as physio assistant. If you have any physio questions make sure you ask your named physio first, they always have the best knowledge as they will know your child best. Have fun with the hover ball if you get one
