This device is called the LightAide from Philips and Perkins which you can go to that link and see what it's ALL ABOUT! Wonder Baby was gracious enough to choose Cole, to try it out for 2 weeks, then we send it off to another family...they are look for 6 families total to try it out...so if you are interested, I would highly recommend visiting their website ASAP so you can have a chance to try the LightAide out!
As you know, we have had a lot of success with lights & buttons for Cole...so this device was right up his alley. He is SO stimulated by lights that it's not even funny. When were outside, he stares into the sun, we get in the car and he stares at the light, any lights in the house...he gravitates to. We turned on the LightAide and he was glued to it! It has these cool "tactile sensory screens" you can put over the top and he LOVED touching them. I know if we were able to use it longer, he would have the button down in no time. You can the LightAide to work on "tracking", the ABC's, colors and SO many games. I was shocked at how many different games you can play!
This program was so fun to be apart of...especially since they let us take it to Cole's school so the other kids could try it...how nice is that!?! ...it's currently there right now, so when we get it back, I will do an update!
Here are some pics (when I get a sec I'll post a video!)
