Every 6 months, my son's Occupational Therapist goes over his self help goals. For YEARS we have skipped over tying shoes because of Velcro. He turned 9 this year and we realized it was time to teach him how to tie shoes. Sounds easy...right? I asked parents on GJOP how they taught their children how to tie and was told about the Loopeez Facebook page. This was the first time I have ever heard of Loopeez.
During his therapy sessions, he could make the first tie successfully but when it came to making the loops, it was very difficult for him to hold both loops and tie at the same time without it falling apart. We took Loopeez into his therapy session and it happened!! This is where Loopeez was PERFECT for him!
|He's putting the Loopeez on|
and making his two loops.
|He has made his two loops and is|
now tying the shoe independently.
|He did it!!!|
Bottom line is we are very happy with how this product assists him with making the loops. Next time he's ready for new sneakers....we're getting tie shoes for sure!
