Building Block Activities


What is Building Block Activity (BBA) ?
BBA consists of seven passive movements, which include body and face tapping and massages. The movements are very safe and easy to do, and beneficial for babies, small children and children with disabilities. The BBA method is based on developmental movement patterns related to integration of the different parts of the body. It is a useful tool for educators, therapists and parents.

Creating New Patterns
We each of us have our own patterns of how to think, feel, behave, and use our bodies. Some children have a hard time focusing. Some throw tantrums when they are uncomfortable or anxious. Some children freeze up when they face difficult situations. Some lack variety in their play routine. It is important to introduce new patterns of thinking and behavior to encourage growth in all directions.
