The twistable therapy Tangle is a new ergonomic approach to stress relief, as well as a manipulative for hand therapy. The Tangle Therapy device consists of 20 interconnected twistable pieces. Each piece is covered with a soft (latex free) rubberized material which is designed for maximum tactile pleasure. This set is perfect for special educational needs.
Tangles are a wonderful classroom tool because they can be used with students of all abilities and are especially helpful for students with special needs.
Tangles can help special needs children a variety of ways. Here are a few ways Tangles help students with various learning abilities:
Re-direct frustrations by channeling maladaptive behaviours into appropriate fidget toy behaviours
