Dogs on the iPad

A patient I have is a young boy who has had years of therapy. He really has to work to move around, so he knows every strategy for avoiding maximal effort. There are many times when he is not about to chase a friend or toy or therapist down the hall, but when Prairie and Ovelle get involved, watch out! Recently, this little boy was balking at propelling the floor scooter down the hall. He was quite determined not to give in to the enticement of his iPad or just chasing dogs . . . but when the dogs started playing with his iPad, he just had to get down the hall to take a turn on the fishing game!
