Spiral toy teaching aid
The Child Development Centre in Grimsby have a teaching aid which consists of a spiral tube through which a ball descends into a box. The object of the device is to help severely disabled children, through play, to develop their muscles and hand/eye coordination. A similar device was needed which was portable so that children could borrow it for a while to take home and further develop their skills.
Using plywood and a length of 100mm clear plastic extractor tube, a similar device was produced, which the photograph makes clear.
The centre is able to make this facility available to families outside school hours to give extra help to the children.
