Our Tactile Squares are wonderful for sensory exploration as well as for encouraging interaction and motor skills. These squares are equally tactile and visual, as well as offering shared and individual activities with a memory and nostalgia focus.
Designed by an Occupational Therapist, they are meaningful, with each one having its own age-appropriate theme. They provide an opportunity for discussion, reminiscence and for carers to learn more about their residents/family members.
Components may vary subject to availability.
I have tried 3 of the 4 boards and I am impressed at how good they are. I feel they are beneficial for a specialised group as the boards are easy for the members to relate to. All members joined in with the conversation and the activity... then I carried the activity on with a quiz.
