Battat Shape and Sounds Sorter Toddler Activity Toy
About this deal
Balls are not too firm nor too soft which is great because the baby is able to grab the ball and squeeze it. And by the way, these balls bounce a bit so it will be so much fun for the little one. The Battat Sound Puzzle Box is designed to help in the development of hand-eye coordination and pattern-matching skills with a fun puzzle game. The child is supposed to match each shape with its matching hole at the top of the puzzle and drop it in. It is possible to find toys designed specifically for blind children. American Printing House for the Blind (APH), for example, has some really cool things you can buy for your blind child. However, most of these are for older children and are often very expensive, so when it comes to baby toys, you’re probably going to find yourself purchasing toys originally designed for sighted children.
I work with quite a few birth to 5 kiddos at my job (pediatric private practice) and have come to have a few favorite speech therapy toys. I keep many of these toys in a “grab and go” bag for evaluations and sessions. Below each, I list a few skills that I can easy target:Playset Includes: Enjoy a table, benches, menu, plates, forks, coffee pot, fry basket and much more! Eye Conditions and Syndromes, Visual Impairment Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP): What Parents Need to Know Targets: Early developing sounds (blow, pop, me, mine, bubble, blow), joint attention, following directions (pop it with your finger, pop it with your toes, etc…), movement breaks, turn-taking, WH questions (who popped it?, where is the bubble?).
Targets: Imitation skills (motor & speech), joint attention, cause/effect, early developing sounds (ball, boom, bang, me, up, more), following directions (hide the balls and give directions to find them). Melissa & Doug Sound Puzzles: Provides auditory stimulation when the different puzzle pieces are put together correctly. The one that provides something more is the shape sound puzzle because you can feel the outlines of the shapes too. Your toddler’s speech therapy sessions may include playing with toys, playing outside, singing age-appropriate songs, and arts and crafts. During or after the speech therapy session the SLP will talk to you about your concerns and questions regarding your toddler’s speech and language skills. Why is it important to make your toddler feel comfortable with SLP?In this case, the sessions would be conducted by the speech-language pathologist, who would use specific techniques and strategies to improve the child’s communication. The parent would sit and watch the therapy, either in the room or behind a 2-way mirror.
I have also found that there are tactile drawings called Tactiles out there that are supposed to help the visually impaired or blind child visualize a picture that one might see if sighted by touching it. Usually the drawings are raised outlines of the actual drawing, but with less detail. Children not acostumed to using these will have a hard time with them unless the proper teaching is done ahead of time. You may also use rubbing plates or tracing plates to have the same effect. The toy is recommended for babies from one month and above. Moreover, the toy has been designed in a way to promote engagement.The typical time to correct a speech difference is 15-20 hours (Jacoby et al, 2002) with typical frequency for articulation treatment being two times weekly for 30 minute sessions (ASHA 2004). This is a good toy for a 2-year-old girl. The brightly-colored pegs and rings will offer hours of entertainment to your two-year-old girl. The color combination in this game is endless. One can also pile up the rings on the pegs. Even as your child grows, it will be an ideal game for her to play. Oh, and we can’t forget that 6-months old babies still are in that “chewing mode”, so if you’re looking for a present for 6 months old or even younger babies, maybe you should think again. This is still PVC although phthalate free.
