EASe CD Newsletter July, August 2011 - Free EASe Game announcement:
Since incorporating in 1990, Vision Audio Inc. has become a key innovator in its mission to help brain-injured children cope with sensory challenges. In 1995 we created the first disc-based auditory stimulation program and then in 2007 we began work on EASe Games, the first and only software designed for children suffering from Sensory Processing Disorder. With almost 100,000 EASe CDs in use by tens of thousands of therapists, the EASe program is one of the largest of its kind in the world. However, there are still children who can benefit from EASe music and games, but do not have them available.
Last month Vision announced a free 38 minute EASe music CD sampler, assembled from one song of each of the ten EASe CDs. This month we are happy to offer a free EASe Funhouse Treasure Hunt PC game demo.
How can a game help a child with a sensory processing disorder? Software has a few advantages that can be exploited successfully to help a child learn to cope with visual and auditory challenges.
Software can be non-judgmental and unemotional. This factor may be a reason computers are so popular with children on the autism spectrum. Software does not get bored. A child can take a detour for an undetermined length of time and the game will still be patiently waiting when he or she comes back. Software can be consistent. Software can be fun and engaging.
Good game design mandates a rich relationship between performance and reward. Good games are fair and fun. Enticing children to participate in their own therapeutic process can only make the process more effective.
A game can create an alternate reality that involves multiple senses and causes physiological change in a person. Anyone who has watched a movie of a roller coaster knows the heart pounding, dizzy sensation. We use all these elements to help a child learn to improve attention, visual concentration, balance and proprioception, in addition to coping with sensory overload.
Parents, teachers or therapists who are curious about EASe Games, can quickly and easily download and use the Free EASe Funhouse game with their child. There is a wealth of information in the EASe Overview, EASe FAQ’s, and EASe Instructions at www.easecd.com. Here one can learn how to best help brain-injured children using EASe music and games. The Free EASe music CD is still available on the site as well.
Kimberlee Wing, OTR/L and owner of Pediatric Development Center of Atlanta said, “I began using the EASe CD’s with the children I work with and saw unbelievable gains in motor planning ability, organization, taking a risk with motor tasks they never would have done before, and social skills”.
