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...]

Ask Sarit: I understand that instead of using the gaming balls you can use other items to play Timocco – what would you recommend?

Timocco's gaming gloves don’t contain a sensor – we use a patented, proprietary image processing technology which allows the camera to detect the balls by their shape and color. What this means is that you can use everyday objects from home or clinic that are circular and match one of the ball colors (red, blue or green) to play Timocco games. Below are some items I frequently use: Balloons: If you would like to work on gross motor … [Read more...]
