People with sensory challenges get a positive response when watching bubble tubes in action, since they provide a tracking activity that helps to improve visual development, color recognition, visual perception and communications skills.

There are different length bubble tubes (from 75 cm to more than 2 meters). The tubes can easily be mounted on cushioned platforms to give stability to the tube and a place to the child (and the parents:)) to sit and enjoy. The cushions can easily been cleaned and they come with a variety of colors and shapes.

Colour wirefree switch can be connected to control the tube. This will promote inclusivity, choice, control and accessible learning. It is possible to hear colors, numbers or rewards when the child pushed the buttons. It is also possible to use your own words or even music.

I also use PECS on the wall so Mitra can use it to communicate with me when she wants to use the bubble tube (laminated pictures of the tube) even if she already knows how to turn it on herself:)
