UB-DISCO                  2008

Affiliated with the University at Buffalo and the Center for Handicap Children. 

Mission:  To provide a programmable light and sound station, for therapists and teachers to use when teaching choice-making and cause-and-effect relationships to physically and developmentally impaired children. Utilizing light, sound, videos, music, spoken-word, and tactile stimulation such as soft vibration, the station will help therapists and teachers create a positive feedback, or a calming environment for students who react positively to enhanced sensory experiences. The clients and customers are the teachers and therapists. The users are the handicapped students. The plan is to keep statistics on successes and failures during use, so that teachers can alter the experience, and use it as part of a child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP).
