Sensory Tree is an innovative product designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders or Sensory Processing Disorders.
The product focuses on two main areas of the senses, auditory and tactile and aims to expose, or gradually introduce, the child to sensory experiences which they may have created phobias of, while they are engaged in an activity they enjoy. This product will familiarize the child with new experiences and desensitize them from experiences they may find difficult to process e.g specific sounds.
Sensory Tree is completely customizable allowing professionals and parents the ability to adapt it to their child's needs. Many different textures can be attached internally on the tactile half, and 6 different sounds can be recorded in the auditory half.
The two half's of the device are used as separate products but can be connected together for easy storage and portability.
The uniqueness and adaptability of Sensory Tree will make it ideal for parents and professionals in many different settings.
