Tech Tip Tuesday : App for Sensory Breaks
Brain Works helps teachers and parents set up a fun and effective sensory break for kids.
FROM THE IDS TEAM:
Developed by an Occupational Therapist, Brain Works helps teachers and parents organize a customized sensory break for kids. The app contains over 100 activities to choose from, as well as the option to set a timer, create a schedule, and the ability to create new activities for children.
FROM THE PROVIDERS:
Occupational Therapists and other specialists often recommend “sensory diets” to children with sensory processing disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, ADD, learning disabilities, and typically developing kids who struggle with certain forms of sensory input. Due to their sensory issues, these children often have difficulty remaining on task, engaging in social interactions, and often have frequent meltdowns. BrainWorks takes the guesswork out of what activities will be the most helpful to these children and allows parents and teachers with an easy way to provide the much-needed sensory breaks!
