TheraMAT

Therapeutic fun for kids in childcare and at home

Description:

Communication can be fuzzy. It can be awkward, frightening, or simply hard to express. What does that experience look like for the growing minds of kids? How can technology help without being the sole solution? The TheraMAT helps build a bridge between children's social, emotional, and mental health. The experience is not just tech but involves people and services.

A multi-use smart mat includes social and interactive activities to develop childhood cognition. The service provides a mobile integrative app to make therapeutic games useful at the home and at childcare services. This smart mat can touch multiple social-emotional points in the child's development: the home, the peer network, and the healthcare community. Games can also be recorded to show progress in cognitive development and to start a conversation between the child and social network.
