Mirror - Soft Exploratory
Designed for sensory play and exploration, particularly suitable for children who are benefiting from sensory integration therapy or activities.
A tri-fold mirror, which creates multiple reflections from different angles. It is surrounded by a sturdy, soft material in bright blue, covered with a durable fabric to ensure safety during use.
The benefits of the mirror in sensory integration are numerous:
Visual Stimulation: The multiple reflections can provide visual feedback, which is stimulating and can help improve a child's visual tracking and focusing abilities.
Self-Exploration: Seeing oneself from various angles promotes self-awareness and curiosity.
Tactile Exploration: The soft borders allow for safe tactile exploration without the risk of injury from sharp edges.
Motor Skills Development: Reaching out to touch the mirrors or the objects reflected in them can help improve fine and gross motor skills.
Cognitive Development: Understanding reflections and angles can enhance cognitive skills related to spatial awareness and cause-and-effect relationships.
Emotional Regulation: For some children, particularly those with sensory processing challenges, the visual input can be soothing and help with self-regulation.
