I work with a five and a half year-old boy with emotional difficulties. He is very interested in and very much enjoys playing with Timocco – and even makes a point of asking to play with Timocco during our sessions together.
One aspect of the program that I think is really important are the attention and the joint attention features in games such as the Balloon or Bubble Bath games. In these games I used two balls and played together with the child; this enabled us to better connect and relate to each other and gave him opportunities to imitate me. We also did Timocco related table-top activities to supplement the movement portion of the sessions.
I’ve told the rest of my co-workers about my experience with Timocco and I’m looking forward to positive and interesting experiences for everyone once they start using it!
