Feet and hand painting

This NET allows opportunities for mands for feet, hands, paper and paint/paintbrush (mand 5M, 6b), or for a missing item (Mand, 6M). The child may also mand using pronouns “paint my feet” vs “paint your hand” or actions (e.g. stamp, walk, jump) and could use adverbs (Mand 8c, 7M, 13f). You can also  generalise tacts of different body parts, or tacts of actions (“what am I doing? – painting/jumping/etc”) and colours (Tact 5M, 6b, 7a, 8M, 10d). It’s great for generalising matching skills of body parts (VP-MTS 10b) or imitation skills (MI 5M). You could also incorporate Intraverbals “you paint with—a paintbrush” or “you wear shoes on you—feet” (IV 7c, 8M). You could also place feet outlines on the paper and have your client place their feet inside to promote motor co-ordination. This activity could also be naturally reinforcing for walking with flat feet if your client engages in toe-walking. Some children really enjoy messy play , although it may require a lot of cleaning after (although great opportunity to mand to clean if you client is motivated (Mand 7c).
