Tacpac was created in response to the total lack of tactile/music resources for the kind of children I was working with at that time: children with severe learning disabilities, autism, Down Syndrome, communication difficulties, and a host of other syndromes.
Tacpac is a sensory communication resource using touch and music. Tacpac helps people with sensory impairment, developmental delay, complex learning difficulties, tactile defensiveness, and limited or pre verbal levels of communication.
