Driving Miss Hoola-Hoop

Those hard-driving PT buddies of mine--you sit with them on that tipsy therapy bolster, you hold up your head for a little while and next time they want you to hold it up even longer!  Well, it's a lot more fun (and a little easier) to hold your heavy head up against gravity if you're looking at something interesting.  If your vision isn't the greatest then you need a little different incentive to work hard...
Driving!  The hula hoop makes a fun steering wheel for her to grasp and rotate from side to side while she practices holding her head up for longer and longer periods.  Maybe next time I can tie some shiny streamers to it, or maybe some textured materials or a stuffed animal that hugs the hoop, to make it even more fun.
