This plastic desk can be used in multiple ways. The desk can be placed on the floor next to the family sofa so the child has back support while playing near other family members. It's great for those children with poor sitting balance because the two side pockets act as support. It can also be used to help children learn to complete tasks. Items are placed in the left pocket, the child completes the task on the table top and when done, sets the completed task in the right pocket. In this picture, the desk is used with a laundry basket for a child who has low tone. Here it acts as a table top to bring items up more at eye level. The child can sit on the floor and play independently in the block area with his friends. It's available in catalogues as well as large discount stores. One parent found it on sale at her local grocery store for less than $4.00.
