What a great way to start our weekend - we had a T.Jacket Introduction Session with the wonderful team of therapists from Nurture Pods last Friday evening!
T.Ware is proud to be assisting Nurture Pods in their mission to provide comprehensive and individualized intervention services to help children with special needs!
The session covered the T.Jacket essentials (1. Features, 2. Trial results, 3. User profiles, 4. Strategic introduction of T.Jacket to minimize resistance for those who are tactile and auditory defensive), before moving on to the fun part – the demo! Everyone tried T.Jacket on and was really pleased with the comforting feeling they got from it! Some of the therapists even managed to fit into a jacket sized Child S before realizing it was probably not meant to be!
The energy level was great -the Nurture Pods team has already sprung into action and identified how T.Jacket can be integrated into the variety of effective early intervention programs already in practice. Beyond calming and comforting, T.Jacket helps the wearer settle down quickly, and improves attention and focus. Nurture Pods starts using T.Jacket during sessions with their clients soon, and we’re glad T.Jacket is being used in such wonderful ways to help change and touch lives!
Using T.Jacket for children with special needs is only one of the many ways T.Jacket can be used. To the team at T.Ware, T.Jacket is just embarking on its adventure with many paths worth exploring. With your help, T.Jacket will have more of the world to see and more opportunities to help touch lives. We look forward to hearing your ideas. Keep them coming! :)
About a year ago, in December 2012, T.Ware took a big scary step forward.
We sent 20 of our (version 4) T.Jacket prototypes out to people. Of course by this time we’d already tried the jacket with many children during several demo sessions, and spoken with different therapists about it too.
We soon found out that this was a much different and more critical test. Getting direct responses from the users felt rather like sending a child unprotected to the first day of kindergarten.
