Benefits of gambling for patients of all ages
Medical specialists and psychologists agree on the importance of play for children's development, regardless of the presence or absence of a disability. Children are always children, their person is not reduced to the symptomatology of a disability, and play is for them a necessity through which they learn to know and relate to the world around them. Akros games, toys and school supplies are very versatile to allow any child, regardless of the pathology that affects them, or their level of maturity, to benefit from their use. Even certain geriatric patients will enjoy the benefits of certain Akros board games that train observation and memory.
Occupational therapists will benefit from Akros' educational games in helping children with developmental delays. These are games and toys that deal with different aspects in which the child needs to progress. Akros' games for occupational therapists work in a fun way with spontaneity and creativity; these are activities where children play roles in playful simulations of everyday activities. These situations, which in real life present difficulties for the child, are overcome by play and fantasy through the controlled environment of the game, improving socialization and eliminating the stress factor.
Different games for specialists of different pathologies
Children with visual or hearing disabilities can also benefit from Akros games as part of their learning. These are products made of materials and shapes that provide the child with the sensory stimulation (sounds, colors, smells, touch) necessary for their development. Children with psychomotor problems will be able to handle different sets of large, easy-to-handle pieces. On the other hand, to train the fine motor skills, the puzzles and games of blocks and lace pieces are part of the resources that Akros brings to psychotherapists.
Speech therapists can use Akros' well-known Logo Bits method for the rehabilitation of patients of any age. Rehabilitation and language development games can be used for children with learning difficulties (for example, due to the incidence of a pathology); or in adults (for example, with limited pronunciation because Spanish is not their mother tongue). Logo Bits consists of playful activities in which the patient is shown cards with an image and the transcription of the sounds of the syllables that make up the word that names it.
