Light Box uses abstract animation and sound to introduce basic touch skills and awareness.
Light Box has become a popular choice for parents of babies and young toddlers but was originally made for teenagers with autism and a range of complex needs. Sounds and graphics are appropriate for any age-group.
Light Box naturally encourages exploration of touch gestures through 30 scenes which range from calm & immersive to loud & energetic. Numerous options are provided to customise visuals and simplify controls.
Reviews from purchasers:
"Cause and Effect Sensory Light Box is a multifaceted app to use when teaching cause and effect, targeting, and visual attention. Great for use with low vision kids or as a "chill out " app for the overly stressed kid or adult....."
"My son is ASD and loves this app so much. Already has a favourite setting. Highly recommended, not just for SEN kids."
"My 18 month old loves it! Great for young ones. Lots of different lights and sounds. Easy to use. :) "
"My almost-5-year-old, blind and autistic, is still trying to figure out how touching the tablet works. This app had him refining his touch and laughing and interacting almost immediately! What a great find!"
"Really pleased with this - great auditory and visual feedback. Used with different people and all find something they like. Well worth the money."
"My DS/Autistic son loves this app. it is calming and soothing and keeps him well engaged. I would recommend this app for long waits and crowded places."
