Cause and Effect Sensory Light Box (1.99) for iPhone and iPad was created for a group of teenagers with complex needs including visual impairment, autism and developmental disabilities. With 21 different scenes with abstract visuals and quality audio the app encourages development and basic awareness of touches and gestures through open-ended exploration and play.
Scenes interact differently and respond to various combinations of taps, presses, sweeping and controlled movements. Some scenes are intended to encourage multi-finger and multi-handed use.
This look like a great app to work on cause and effect for individuals who enjoy visual stimuli. Have you used it? Please comment if you have experience with the app?
Should this be in your OT iTool Kit?
