Timocco the monkey raises smiles on children’s faces in therapy.
The kids are having fun and are so concentrated that they’re not aware that they are actually working very hard.
It is amazing to see a child with low muscle tone and shoulder weakness, able to play with both arms in the air for an entire five minutes or more, with very short breaks.
The motivation level with Timocco is so high, I can challenge the kids’ motor functions even more than with regular games and standard therapy.
Children showing dyspraxia and difficulty with motor accuracy are surprising in their ability to learn motion patterns required to operate the virtual monkey efficiently.
They are able to slow hand movement, control the speed and plan the motion path needed in order to make Timocco the monkey succeed and progress in the game.
The games provide me with activities which improve a wide variety of motor and perceptual skills. In fact, the system allows me to define the game settings and to choose a fitting training program adapted to every child’s needs and progress.
