Here is Thomas standing leaning with one hand on a surface! He likes practising this skill while listening to his favourite music! This requires Thomas’ core to be switched on and activated, ready to save himself from falling. It also teaches Thomas to stand up tall, and keep his centre of gravity in the middle to prevent him falling over. When this skill gets easier, Thomas will be ready to try standing independently. Thomas is working on standing to stand up at his touch screen whiteboard in school and play games on it with his friends!
