Sensory Integration: Tactile Toys
By: Renata Bursten, Dragonfly Staff

Good toys that give strong tactile feedback for children with low vision, blindness, or sensory integration problems (i.e.. Autism or PDD) are crucial so that they can explore concepts through their hands, a necessary skill to learn. This Sensory Touch Board and Double Decker Dominoes invite children to explore matching textures. Presenting the tactile and visual clues together makes matching easier to learn.

Speech Language Therapy: Controlling Vocalizations

Children who have had trach tubes or who have trouble controlling vocalization can practice making louder and softer sounds - and be rewarded for it! Just add one of the fun switch adapted toys, and watch your child work hard for the playful payoff. You can adjust the Voice Activated Switch to pick the exact activation sound desired. Specialized software such as the Visual Voice Tools help too!
