For Quinn, we lay out all of the 20 tiles so he can easily see them all, keeping the wooden shapes inside the cloth carrying bag. Quinn reaches in, and by touch alone, tries to accurately identify which shape he is touching. At first, this was really difficult for him because he lacks self/social awareness and tactile activities, such as learning by touch, are particularly hard for him. As we’ve used this set more and more, he is really learning to develop that sense of touch.
When I sat down to do the pictures and video for this activity, I was thoroughly impressed by how far Quinn has come since starting this activity. He gets over half right, when before he got none or almost none correct. I really look forward to watching this sense develop more and more as he plays with this toy.
As with all Guidecraft’s products, this set is very well made and will last a very long time. You can purchase 3D Feel & Find on Guidecraft’s website, www.guidecraft.com. It retails for $30.
