A set of hexagonal panels for tactile stimulation contains five elements, each with a diagonal of 12.5 cm. The filling that constitutes the texture is natural. All types of filling give a variety of tactile stimulation.
The set can be used as a complement to the large sensory path. It provides an opportunity, among others, for:
- Tactile discrimination and integration of tactile stimuli from the upper and lower limbs. The child picks up a touchpad, and while walking along the sensory path, their task is to find the same filling. Exercises – depending on the age and abilities of the child – should be performed both with eyes open and blindfolded.
- Exercises of abdominal muscles, e.g. rolling on pads with arms extended above the head.
- Tactile stimulation. The variety of fillings provide stimulation for both children with hypersensitivity and under-sensitivity.
- Tactile discrimination – determining the structure of the pads.
For more sample games, see the instruction manual supplied with the set. Each child can find their own way to use the panel. Practice shows that the imagination of children is unlimited. All you need to do is let them play and surround them with safe and attractive elements.
The obstacle course is ideal for parent-child home play as an introduction to the world of stimuli. It is also great for working with children with hypersensitivity and under-sensitivity of the sensory system. If it is used systematically, it will help to develop motor skills, hand-eye and foot-eye coordination and spatial awareness.
Set 1 includes:
- Pebbles. Large white pebbles are perfect for fine motor skills therapy and finger-pointing games. Cold pebbles are enjoyable for children and arouse curiosity. They can be used for learning numeracy and learning the concepts of “warm” and “cold”.
- Glass balls. The green colour has a calming effect and encourages play. The pebbles are smooth and at the same time convex enough that children like to use them. We can also use them to count the elements.
- Himalayan salt. A panel for deep stimulation with tactile hypersensitivity. The child may not like the salt texture at first. However, it is worth using it regularly. Frequently introducing the child to different structures will allow the child to get used to them.
- Barley groats. The rough structure will be a good way to make feet less sensitive to touch and at the same time stimulate the receptors of children who are less sensitive to touch.
- Resin with glitter. Smooth filling with delicate glitter that attracts the child’s attention. The panel is extremely different from the other elements, which facilitates tactile discrimination when walking along the course.
The set includes an instruction manual with sample sensory path games.
