I had the chance to use Timocco with a 5 year old with significant attention and concentration deficits. Popping balloons according to the pin color wasn’t easy for him but despite the challenge he was devoted to completing the mission and finishing the game – which normally doesn’t happen with other games he finds challenging.
When we played once more it was evident that the attention game is a tool for building the organization skills required for daily living activities. The child “returned Timocco the monkey back home”, wore his socks and shoes, and was completely organized in performing the task!
I really like how Timocco is fitted to therapy in the small things, such as the option to delay the coins, so the child can successfully count how many coins he received. I constantly pause the games in order to mediate and to work on grapho-motor and motor skills – pausing is a great function.
Once again, I would like to stress that Timocco is a tool which diversifies the session, really addresses the needs of children and is very well fitted to therapy goals.
