Useful for teaching the fundamentals of number writing at home, in the classroom, or in therapeutic settings, 0-9 Magnatab is a sensory driven activity for children with autism, asperger's or other challenges that make a pencil grip and number recognition difficult.
Your early mathematician will enjoy writing the numbers using a magnetic stylus on a board containing magnetic beads. As the stylus is placed on each number the magnetic beads pop up to form solid or curved lines. Following the up, down, and sideways directional arrows, children can trace the numbers with their stylus or finger and practice writing them. After the numbers have been raised, they can be easily erased with the tip of a finger.
Therapists and educators of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) will find that 0-9 Magnatab teaches visual discrimination, number recognition, and fine motor skills to children that struggle with hand-eye coordination and have difficulty identifying and remembering each number individually and in sequence.
