Flip top book with red and yellow shoe lace.
Work on tying shoes, visual perception, and precise fine motor control
I have used this book in therapy to teach older kids (who had given up) to learn to tie their shoes. This tool has been especially successful with people who learn visually. I give the minimal verbal prompts of criss-cross, down and through for each section (twice). I have 2 books. I use one to model and after they learn to tie with the book, I take the shoe lace out of the 2nd book and put it in their shoe. Then they can continue to follow the colors if they need to on the actual shoe until they are doing it independently. Very exciting for them to see success after years of failed attempts!
