K-Ball, short for Kinesthetic Basketball, is a basketball game you play with your eyes closed! Impossible you say...read on! One side of the 11" x 17" dry-erase surface depicts an entire basketball court, complete with men and a scoreboard. the other size shows only half court with men arranged in foul shot position. the men are actually preprinted circles and squares in 2 different colors scattered across the court. The object of the game is for the human players to score points. To do so, your game piece or tip of a dry erase marker is placed on your shape at center court. Decide which of your teammates you want to "pass" to and practice that move 2 or 3 times with your eyes open. when ready, make that same move but with your eyes closed. If your dot lands totally inside your shape, then, it was a successful pass and you get to go again

March Madness Basketball Fun
It's March and the heght of basketball season. Why not incorporate basketball into our treatment sessions? Here are some fun adaptations to games and other activities you can do this month!
Play Horse: You have to spell the word before you can move on. To play- pick a word and stand near the basketball net. You have to shoot once and make a basket to get the first letter of that word. Then move to a new location and now you have to toss two baskets for the second letter and so on until you have shot a basket for every letter in each word. You can't move to the next spot until you shot for the letter.
Bounce Pass: Practice passing to peers using a marker on the floor. Can your child hit the marker on the floor before bouncing the ball to a friend. If you don't have a partner, you can always have your child use the wall, throw, bounce on floor, hit the wall and try to catch on the return.
Don't Need a Hoop: You don't have to have a hoop to play basketball, you can use hula hoops or pool noodles, these larger hoops will make scoring a basket a littel easier. You can either tape it to the wall and have a hoop similiar to your basketball hoop. Or hang a hula hoop from the basketball net, hook or you can use your swing hook to hold your hoop.
Mania Relay Game: Each child will have their own basketball at the start. They have to remain within the designated area and dribble their ball with one hand, now have another student pass a ball to their other hand. Now they're dribbling 2 basketballs, one in each hand. How long can you keep it going? Can they dribble both back to start line?
Basketball Obstacle: How far can your child dribble a ball while working their way through an obstacle course. Can they walk on the balance beam, step over some bricks, and turn around all while dribbling?
