The Alexander Zoo – The Totem Pole of Personal Use
Discover this delightful way to introduce people to the most common interference patterns in personal use!

Experience this unique, non-judgmental, and fun way to introduce students to the idea of noticing habits of personal use and coordination through play and lots of laughter, as we each build our own Totem Pole.
