Autism Play Ground lets you connect via Bluetooth to ZOTTZ - Z Occupational Therapy Toolz.
ZOTTZ is an occupational therapy tool focused on development of fundamental fine motor skills for Autistic and challenged children. Skills that ZOTTZ helps develop include holding pencils, picking up small objects like cheerios, cutting with scissors, pinching, buttoning. It helps a child develop finger strength, focus, and hand-eye coordination. These are critical tools for life.
ZOTTZ is a revolutionary tangible tech, reversing regression, a helping hand for challenged children. It works on a simple yet extremely effective principle: sensory integration and sensory feedback.
Z Occupational Therapy Toolz has ambience, it sits on the table beckoning the child with LEDs flashing and soothing sounds to interact, to press PENCIL, PINCHER, BUTTONS and SCISSORS. And on performing the Occupational Therapy task the child is rewarded by sensory feedback: LEDs flashing, music playing. This motivates the child to press and play again and again, helping little fingers practice fine motor skills they would otherwise not be interested in performing.
As a Bluetooth device ZOTTZ communicates what the child is doing, and what Occupational Therapy tasks he or she can do and what they need to work on. By displaying this onscreen a parent, teacher or Occupational Therapist can better understand and guide the child to better hand skills, and bilateral coordination.
