Client reviews for the “Let’s Move – Mirrors” card game

I player this game with an 11-year-old boy with Down’s syndrome. I remember it being a very happy session – and I think he did too.
First we sorted the cards. He took the boys and I took the girls. Then we looked for the mirror images. Next we tried to work out what sport or activity the people on the cards were engaged in. And finally we mimed the actions. That was when we got the giggles. The game offers a wealth of possibilities.

Review of the “Let’s Move – Mirror” card game by two psycho-motor therapists:

Florent from the French Federation of Psycho-Motor Therapists and Aline, a trainee.

Good points:

– Possibility of focusing on each part of the body individually.

– This makes it possible to work on body mapping and reversibility.

– Formatting possibilities make the game easy to negotiate.

– The child can correct his/her own position in the mirror.

– Three different posture positions (lying, crouching, standing).

– Right and left profiles.

 

Less good:

You need to be very supple to achieve some of the positions and for some of them, it’s hard to stay like that for more than a few seconds. Having said that, this does have the advantage of getting the child to realize what he/she is physically capable of.
