Can Magformers improve your child's learning?
Magformers is found to be beneficial for a variety of conditions including Autism, ADHD, developmental delay and sensory processing disorders.
"Magformers has been helpful in developing skills such as bi-lateral integration as the children have to use both hands to put the shapes together, improving fine motor skills and fine motor control, increasing hand and finger strength by pulling the shapes apart, enhancing visual perceptual skills such as spatial awareness and form constancy, improving motor planning and construction skills (conceiving and executing), cognitive skills such as colour and shape recognition (including 2D and 3D shapes) and it has even helped creativity and idea generation, building beyond the scope of the copying cards included in the box." (Sarah Hickey, Occupational Therapist (NSW Australia))
