Physical therapists usually place doh onto a mat and have kids walk barefoot on it, while speech therapists use it for activities that can have pragmatic or receptive speech opportunities worked in. Such as ‘how large’ or ‘how many’.
Using play doh flattened out on a desk is often and occupational therapy activity used to help with finger isolation by having kids pretending to type and leaving indents into the Doh (dough of varying kinds can also be used).
Stamping items, rolling, pinching, and cutting play doh is popular. Watch hands carefully for the movements you want them to have for additional skill building.
