Tangle toys are highly recommended by teachers, parents, professionals as well as advocacy organizations.
The Tangle Brain Tools book instructs how to kinesthetically teach children math, reading, grammar, emotional understanding and much more
Recent technological developments have allowed scientists to learn more about the cognitive systems that govern learning. Research shows that children of all ages and abilities benefit from movement while learning. The sensory and motor stimulation Tangle provides has been found to help stimulate and maintain attention, even improve math and reading comprehension.
Tangle is one of the most highly recommended educational and therapeutic toys worldwide for an incredibly wide range of Special Needs populations including ADHD, autism, trichtillomania, anxiety, depression, bipolar, learning disabilities, anorexia, and more.
Tangles are used in the field of play therapy to assist children in processing emotions and practicing self-soothing. Recent work in cognitive neuroscience suggests a connection between ADHD and higher creativity. Playing with the infinite movement possibilities of a Tangle's interlocking segments, both children and adults report expanded perception, creativity and problem-solving.
Tangle Therapy received 4 Stars in the areas of cognitive, communicative, sensory, and physical from AblePlay, an independent evaluation system developed by National Lekotek Center.
The shape, color, texture and visual impact of Tangle is designed to stimulate the brain. The brain stem could be called the "switch" that triggers attention. If the brain stem is the organ through which most of the sensory- motor information flows, and sensory experiences enhance or activate attention, Tangle not only encourages movement, but also contains sensory information that sends impulses to the brain that helps the learner stay alert.
Tangle is used by all ages, cultures and diagnoses. Anyone can play with a Tangle. Anyone can help their child with Tangle BrainTools!
"Tangle Toys are fabulous. I always make them available to my students with autism. We use them in so many different ways. My students use them as fidgets. When they take Tangles with them to their general education classroom, they are able to stay focused on instruction longer! I have used the sound-activated Tangles to increase verbalization with my non-verbal students. My kids get so excited when the thing lights up. Tangle Toys ROCK!!!" Rebecca Platero, ASD Teacher, Clarkston MI
"I use Tangles as support for students who need extra help while trying to sit and focus in class. I also use them as a reward when students complete their work." Stephanie Perez, 5th Grade Teacher, Fairfield CA
