Tailor-made for children with visual and multiple disorders, to assist in the development of the visual skills of these children.
TRAINING OF VISUAL ATTENTION The application consists of two parts: the first stage “watch what’s happening” is suitable for children even younger than six months of age. The second part, with touching tasks, is suitable for children who are beginning to be interested in specific pictures, i.e. around one year old. The game is very simple, designed to be handled by children at various levels of psychomotor development.
TRAINING OF FINE MOTOR SKILLS The second stage of the game: “touch and make something happen” is suitable both for children with visual disorders and for children with severe fine and gross motor skills impairments. The children can touch the screen anywhere or just slap it – and they are rewarded by an interesting sound of a musical instrument or an animal.
The application was developed in cooperation with low vision specialists and experts in the field of early intervention and caring for children with special needs.
