Independent Sensory Exploration in Standing for Children with Significant Disabilities

Check this video out. I love how they are able to explore the objects by themselves. I do not love the price tag though!

Yep, that's my town - the OT and I went to HS together. They have developed a really special place there. Thanks for showing.

I would have loved to have access to something like that as a teacher of children with multiple and severe disabilities. One of the biggest frustrations was trying to prevent or overcome learned helplessness in children who had such little control over their world and their ability to engage with it. Unlikely a public school that protested buying switches and a light table for my students with visual impairment would ever do anything other than laugh at the cost of that system, but it is wonderful to know it is out there!
