Timocco Children's Interactive Computer Game Review!

All parents want the best for their children. Most of the time we have to go above and beyond to ensure each of our children receives the best. When your a parent of a special needs child the reach is that much greater of a task to fill. Besides the standard learning expected of our child at a certain age, many of our kids need extra help. Having a child with Autism my daughter requires different learning tools to help her understand how things work. Searching for that one tool that can not only make learning fun but my daughter actually understands is quite an extensive duty. Traditional learning methods just do not cut it, she is not the typical learner. Whether your child is a visual learner or audio learner Timocco is an interactive, motion based computer game for children with difficulties in motor control and cognitive skills, used in clinics, schools and at home. As part of occupational therapy or physiotherapy, adapted to each special need, motor and cognitive skills improve in a fun, safe and non-violent gaming environment. Each game focuses on specific abilities, and enables the user to select between levels of difficulty. The games can be adopted to the child’s specific needs. Performance results are saved in a database on the Internet or on a local network, and can be viewed and analysed any time.

One of the signature signs of Autism in children is the inherent difficulty to communicate. With Tim Duet these children are able to play games to improve communication and interaction skills through real world scenarios. Tim Duet games are designed to improve Executive Function (EF) and communication skills with an emphasis on the generalization process to daily living.

This package of games is aimed for the top range of the learning curve. With the use of tobii eye wear  the child can acquire eye gaze skills that can be transferred and generalized into the activities of daily living, which encourages communication. The activities in this game also teach the child how to use eye gaze for the purpose of choosing, focusing, planning and problem solving skills. In addition, Timocco’s Tim Duet teaches children acceptance of game rules, the ability to share common space, the ability to relate to the presence of others, and to learn how to maintain a joint / dual relationship. Not only does Timocco get your child moving but hooks them into the fun that is learning. This program grows with your child along with introducing them to new techniques and structured learning tools to help provide a productive learning experience.
For less than $1 a day you can score a private tutor for your child! It can be used on both Windows and Mac. The overall idea is similar to that of a Xbox Kinect but specially formatted with all the goodies your looking for in a game system for your special needs child. Finally special needs parents and educators have a gaming system specifically made just for their child! I just love Timocco, they are a new wave of therapy!
