DYSPRAXIA with COCO THINKS and COCO MOVES and the ROLLING BALL

COCO et la bille qui roule

Dyspraxia is a very common disorder that can affect 5-7% of children between the ages of 5 and 11, but persists into adulthood. It is possible to find strategies to limit the difficulties or to set up compensation tools.

Dyspraxia is a disorder that corresponds to a difficulty in performing certain gestures and voluntary actions. This disorder is the result of a dysfunction in the brain area that controls motor skills.

Dyspraxia can result in several difficulties depending on the type of dyspraxia present. The disorders are divided mainly into two categories:visual-spatial disorders and motor disorders.

In this article, you will get all the information about dyspraxia and examples of activities you can do at home to practice and improve your skills.

Children with dyspraxia often experience significant difficulties with coordination, which can affect their ability to perform daily tasks and participate fully in social and educational activities. Their motor coordination can be impaired, leading to challenges in simple actions such as dressing, writing, or even holding objects. Activities that require precise timing of movement, such as participating in ball games or sports activities, can also be particularly strenuous for them. These coordination difficulties can not only affect their selfconfidence, but also their emotional and social wellbeing, as they may feel left out or frustrated when they are unable to keep up with their peers. It is therefore crucial to provide specialized support and tailored strategies to help these children overcome their coordination difficulties and reach their full development potential.

The The Rolling Ball app offers a unique interactive experience where children have to tilt the tablet to move the ball that appears on the screen, offering eight different types of exercises. Through this activity, children have the opportunity to work on their coordination, bimanual skills, handeye coordination, and other essential cognitive functions. This playful and interactive approach is particularly beneficial for supporting dyspraxic children who encounter difficulties in these areas. By providing them with an engaging learning environment tailored to their needs, The Rolling Ball helps these children develop their motor and cognitive skills effectively while promoting their selfconfidence.

Chase the circles

Tilt the tablet to get the ball between the circle. Once you reach a circle, another one appears in another position.

The child must therefore wait to see where the circle appears and immediately adapt his movement. The child must therefore continue to change the direction of the ball, adapting his muscle tone. In addition, he must try to get the ball to the next circle as quickly as possible, so the child must find the best route for the ball to take.

Follow the line

Tilt the tablet to move the ball across the screen along the line.

The child must adapt his movement and the muscle tone of his arms and hands to make the ball move. He must also look at the line on the screen and therefore anticipate the direction the ball should take. This game allows you to work on their motor coordination and spatial awareness, while allowing them to develop their control and precision skills in a familiar virtual environment.

Children with dyspraxia may have difficulty in organizing their gaze. This difficulty manifests itself with a difficulty in reading (since the eye cannot follow the line), in the ability to count objects because the organization of the gaze is not fluid and therefore the child may forget or count an object twice, or even a difficulty in searching for or analyzing objects. In this case, too, the gaze does not follow a logical analysis so the child may not notice important details of the objects.

Another visual-spatial difficulty is the difficulty in placing elements in relation to each other in space. The child may therefore have difficulty calculating distances or relationships between objects. This manifests itself with difficulties in drawing or in subjects such as geometry. Again, the child may bump into furniture because his perception of distance and space is impaired.

COCO THINKS and COCO MOVES is an application full of educational games designed to stimulate all cognitive functions in children, thus accompanying them in their learning journey.

These games are meticulously tailored to allow every child, regardless of level, to strengthen their skills and progress over time. Incorporating a sports break every 15 minutes, the app offers the child the opportunity to take a welldeserved break while also working on their motor skills.

This holistic approach promotes a global and balanced development while making learning fun and rewarding.

The child may have difficulty performing complex voluntary movements automatically. These movements are called praxis“. This means that a child with dyspraxia has to concentrate on each of his movements and it takes a lot of energy. We do a lot of activities without thinking about it, such as tying our shoes, throwing a ball or opening the lock on the door. In dyspraxia, almost no movement is automated.

Since the movements are not automatic and the child has to think about what to do, the second difficulty is poor coordination of gestures. This is because the dyspraxic child may drop objects or have difficulty handling them. For example, the child may have difficulty using scissors, rulers or erasers.

Finally, the last difficulty is in the assembly of the parts. The child may have difficulty manipulating objects or following a sequence. The most challenging activities are construction games or puzzles. By having coordination difficulties, the child can also have difficulties in sports if there are activities that are easier than others. For example, swimming is advised for children with dyspraxia.

Tangram

Position the pieces to fill the model.

This game requires precise motor planning and visualmotor coordination to manipulate the different pieces and position them appropriately to recreate specific shapes. By performing these actions, dyspraxic children can improve their ability to anticipate and execute complex movements, while developing their spatial perception and understanding of the relationships between shapes.

A sports break plays a crucial role in the development of dyspraxic children, providing a multitude of benefits for their motor skills and overall wellbeing. In addition to improving their coordination, balance and muscle strength, it allows them to develop better body awareness and coordination of movements, aspects that are often disrupted in dyspraxic children. In addition, adaptive sports activities provide an inclusive environment where these children can thrive, boosting their selfconfidence and selfesteem. In addition, participation in sports games also promotes the development of valuable social skills such as cooperation, ruleabiding, and teamwork, contributing to their social integration and emotional wellbeing. In short, the sports break is of paramount importance in supporting the overall development of dyspraxic children, both physically and psychosocially.

COCO THINKS and COCO MOVES includes a sports break every 15 minutes of use, thus offering moments of respite from prolonged use of screens. Sports activities remain accessible at all times, allowing children to practice them at their convenience. Designed specifically to work on motor skills, spatial body perception, and other motor skills, these activities are tailored to meet each childs individual needs.
