REVIEW

Clayton has enjoyed working with this Pattern Block Activity Cards set. We used this over the summer. Starting with the simple cards of colour and shape matching, which I knew he could do already, BUT him wanting to do any task is the real challenge.

When it comes to children with Autism, they sometimes have the abilities BUT refuse to use or show them so it is a case of finding something that interests them enough to show that they CAN rather than they can BUT choose not to.

This held his focus, the bright colours and that it was a quick and straight forward task I was asking him to show me if he could do. I would get the box out, place a card on the floor and open up the bag of shapes. I would give him the instructions ” Clayton, your turn” he was always happy to sit down and do this task. I would high five him and add a gold star sticker to the bottom of the card so I knew he had completed it as they do look very similar.

These cards are made of good thick card with a high glossy finish and have great progression. From basic colour/shape matching to figuring out how a certain coloured shape fits into a whole block of that colour. To then progressing to no colour cards to advanced task cards with question tasks on them.

A perfect set to get started with maths, shape and pattern skills, exploring patterns, symmetry, linear and area measurement as well as fractions and problem solving.

Highly recommended

REVIEW

Clayton has loved these we actually bought 2 sets, 1 for in the home and 1 for in his backpack which goes out with us. They are so light and small you could easily pop them them into your own bag.

When the light hits them they make beautiful patterns on the floor. They are a different colour each side so when you turn them round you get a different look, when the colours cross over they make a 3rd colour.

These help to regain a sense of calm through the soothing repetitive liquid drops falling from top to bottom, focusing on something other than what id going on, watching those drops move to the bottom, creates a calm mind and helps to settle in difficult situations. They certainly work for Clayton.

This review is for Debenhams – Blue hanging chair http://bit.ly/HangingChairClaytonandMe

This hanging chair from Maze Rattan is finished in a weather and water-resistant woven PU which mimics the look of grey rattan. The cushions are removable and have a plush, comfortable filling which, along with the gentle motion of the suspended chair, ensures it is ideal for garden relaxation.

  • Main material: PU Rattan
  • Main material finish : Aluminium
  • Cushion details: Shower Resistant
  • Water & waterproof : can be left outside, except for cushions. They should be stored inside when not in use
  • Care instructions: Clean with a sponge and soapy water, rinse then allow to dry naturally
  • Approximate assembly time: 30 minutes (2 people)
  • Warranty: 1 year

 

Strong, Safety harness so you can not swing too far or go around and round. Top bolt and not a screw so it can not be undone by turning round and round. Ideal for indoor and outdoor use, self standing and big enough to hold adults. Perfect for Sensory Room and and help Sensory Overload
WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

1. Strong Base so it doesn’t tip over easily
2. Strong Chain and Bolt NOT a screw as this can turn as they spin around and around and drop the chair to the floor
3. PU Rattan for more durability and less breakaage
4. A safety harness at the back so the child cannot swing to hard

NOTE:
Make sure these are put away or used immediately when in small form so they are not swallowed. Supervision required with these.

Clayton and his siblings loved playing with these. We decided to do them in the bath rather than outside in a paddling pool so if we had too much water in we could let it out easily with a drain guard over the plug hole so none went down. They were very easy to scoop out of  the bath to remove too.

These can be reused – dried out and refilled with water. As Clayton puts things in his mouth we do not keep things like these in the house, they played in them for 2 full days in and out, finding different ways to move and pour them before removing them and giving them away to friends to play with.
