Screwball scramble is a game where you have to get a ball through an obstacle course. To play it, you push buttons, turn dials, and slide levers in order to get the ball to move through the course.
I have used this game in therapy with kids of all abilities. It is difficult to get past some of the obstacles, so I help if needed.
A challenge can be given to play the game with an affected hand after playing with an unaffected hand. I have also had a client weight bear on an affected side while playing the game.
Some of the obstacle course requires precise movements to get through, so it is good when trying to develop more precision. It can also be a challenge for visual perception and motor planning because you have to figure out how to move the knobs in order to get the parts of the maze to do what you want them to do.
