Background and Merits

The development of TacTiles®

TacTiles® was developed through the work with the Feuerstein method to improve the cognitive development of children with learning or concentration deficiencies.

How we got into this

Our introduction to the world of cognitive development is as many by a combination of fate and interest.

Our oldest daughter have had some challenges as she was born with a deficiency that was only diagnosed when she was two years old. In the first two years of her life she had thus fallen behind in her development, obviously something we as parents could not stand by and watch without taking action.

Since 2010 we have therefore hometrained her and seen that we as parents can make a substantial difference in how much of a child’s potential is developed. We have also come to recognize the limitations of the established public institutional system – even though we in Denmark have one of the best health care systems in the world. At the same time we are fortunate that we in Denmark have a law supporting the parents in hometraining their child with special needs. This has made a world of difference for us as a family and for our daughter.

We have therefore been scanning the market for child development and have hometrained her combining a number of different methods. We have been very fortunate to meet a number of very knowledgeable and skilled professionals on our journey. We have touched upon and tested a number of different training methods and seen what has worked on our own daughters as well as other children in our hometraining network.

The methods/systems we have been working with are:

  • The Family Hope Center (FHC)
  • Castillio Morales
  • Myofacial release
  • ABR – Advanced Biomechanical Rehabilitation
  • ABM – Anat Baniel Method
  • Ulla Lebahn –
  • Karlstad model
  • Waldon approach
  • Feuerstein

In the process we have had monthly consultations with some of the best practitioners within each of their field and through this have received guidance and suggestions on how to even more efficient use the time and energy available for developing our daughters abilities.

During this process we have again and again been commended on our practical implementation of the various methods and been encouraged to make the tools we have developed available for the good of a wider range of practitioners and parents.
