Aesthetically charming as well as highly tactile.
A large variety of fluid shapes, raised and recessed areas as well as contrasting textures make this contemporary looking panel as pleasing to the touch as to the eye.
Textures have been carefully chosen to offer a range of temperatures, softness/hardness, smoothness/coarseness and include fabric, meal, carpet, synthetic turf and safety mirror.
Useful for colour recognition, visual perception and discrimination, the panel allows different movements and use of fine motor function.
To be wall mounted at an appropriate height for the user
This panel has many uses including:
- exploration of the textures for enjoyment, not as part of a goal-orientated activity so there is no pressure to achieve
- tracing lines and visual tracking
- stimulating conversation and an awareness of preferences e.g. the different fabrics can encourage discussion about clothing likes and dislikes
- imaginative play - draw your fingertips over the sticks as the explorer ventures into the forest, stroke the synthetic grass as the hero runs through the meadow ...
- for orientation - as tactile signposting along corridors for those with visual impairments
This product is for tactile purposes only. Must be used under supervision, do not allow users to pick at the tiles as they may work loose.
