The spring season brings warmer longer days but also can be a wet time of year depending on where you’re at. We love the opportunities that springtime brings to go outside and play, but we know that there are times that thunderstorms or even a light drizzle can force the play inside. Timocco’s platform has the fun and engaging games to keep kids moving, even when they cannot play outside. We have created 3 ideas below that will help move and motivate, even when skies are gray. 1. Can’t go … [Read more...]
Timocco’s Trip to AOTA 2017 was Amazing!
The Timocco team just returned from Philadelphia at our 4th AOTA conference, and it was the best one yet!

There was no shortage of smiles and energy at our booth as we … [Read more...]
Game Highlight: Fish Spell offers great variety of Skill Development!
Timocco’s platform has so many great games for skill development, and we wanted to take some time to highlight one of our favorites, Fish Spell. The name of the game does contain the word spell, so there is definitely a letter/word component to this game, but it doesn’t have to be played with letters; you can also play with colors or shapes. The game mostly works on motor accuracy and efficiency, sequencing, spelling, as well as visual perception & discrimination. To play ‘Fish … [Read more...]

Hi, Timocco appears to be a therapeutic game that can provide variety in treatment, but I’m concerned that I’ll have technical difficulties with the platform and as a therapist I’ll be unnecessary during treatment with a computer. Your concern regarding operating the software is understood, but from my experience with many therapists I can tell you with certainty that from the moment you try, you’ll find the platform user-friendly and easy to use. Here at Timocco we’re committed to being … [Read more...]

It digests the information, crunches the numbers and spits out results in … [Read more...]
Ask Sarit: I’m looking for games that can help prepare my son for school. What games do you have that are good preparation for school work?
School is fast-approaching and you're certainly not alone in taking these last few weeks of August to prepare for the year ahead. There are actually two separate skill sets you can work on to help your child get into 'school-mode'; the first, which I will focus on this week, are motor-related while the second are learning related and I will cover those more in depth next week. Motor abilities include skills such as balance, planning and spatial organization. Strengthening a child’s motor base … [Read more...]
