Reach & Match® Inclusive Learning Program is a secondary development (9 months field-testing) from collaborating with the early educators, therapists and parents to design the activities for early intervention. 30+ activities and games are designed based on 7 learning outcomes: Braille Learning, Cognitive Skills, Sensory Integration, Sense of Satisfaction, Language Enrichment, Body Movement and Social Interaction. We designed meaningful activities which focus on exploration, interaction and active movement. Children and teachers are inspired to design their own games, with the best ideas selected and added into the Inclusive Learning Program, hence a community within teachers, therapists and parents is created.
