Synchrony - Toy helping Autistic Kids communicate through Music

Posted by Sandeep Singh on 12 Nov, 2018

Synchrony is a drum-like device helping autistic children engage with others through music. It can be used as formal or informal music therapy, which has been proven to help autistic children broaden their social and emotional skills. 

The smooth, silicon instrument helps autistic kids bridge social gaps by letting them harmonize — literally — with playmates. Synchrony responds to touch, always playing calming sounds without dissonance or "bad notes," which can sometimes be overwhelming for autistic children.

Posted by Earthr.org Content Team on 20 Aug, 2018

Every child needs a friend, and Leka is a friend that can make a major difference — especially for autistic children.

An "interactive and multi-sensory smart toy," Leka encourages autistic children to play independently, helping them develop autonomy. The adorable smart toy is equipped with games that motivate social interactions, and also enhance motor, cognitive and emotional skills.

Leka plays sounds and music, speaks, lights up, and vibrates to engage a child in multi-sensory play. But the toy is also completely customizable, and can be tailored to a child's needs and comfort.
