This colourful, quilted mat is perfect for younger children or those on the autistic spectrum. The child sits on the blue part of the mat and can work with the adult on activities involving placing cards into the clear plastic pockets around the edge of the mat. The mat is versatile and can be used for a number of skill development areas including listening, following instructions, category sorting, speaking and listening and language. Size: 115cm x 85cm. Pockets: 16.5cm x 12cm. Cotton velour, fully washable at 30 degrees. Comes with notes of ideas for use.
Thanks to Rachel Farley, Speech and Language Therapist for this idea.
