Timocco is fast becoming a must-have product in schools and nurseries teaching children with SEN and various other physical and mental disabilities. One such school taking full advantage of what it has to offer is Charlton School, Greenwich, which has been using Timocco for some time and is seeing excellent results amongst its pupils.
Kathryn Stowell, Head of Information Computer Technology at Charlton School explained what interested her about Timocco: “I first saw it at the BETT Show and thought it looked fantastic. As a school we like to trial new, innovative equipment and Timocco is a unique product because it actually tracks the students’ movements and provides us with data that enables us to monitor their progress.”
Katie Chapman teaches a class of students with profound and multiple learning difficulties and varying levels of physical impairment at Charlton School. She says Timocco has been an excellent addition to her lessons because as well as increasing the students’ fine motor skills and awareness of cause and effect it is a fun and engaging activity that they can really enjoy. “I can tell how much the children enjoy it by seeing how engaged they are; they are all non verbal but they show their enjoyment through facial expressions and it is obvious by their smiles” commented Katie.
Both Kathryn and Katie have seen incredible improvements in their pupils thanks to Timocco and added: “We would certainly recommend Timocco to other teachers and have already recommended the Home edition to parents so that they can enjoy playing at home and engaging with their children in a fun, interactive way.”
