Cause and Effect Sensory Light Box was originally created as an iPad app for a group of teenagers with complex needs including visual impairment, autism and developmental disabilities.
Light Box has since proven popular with parents and teachers of much younger children with and without special needs.
The app encourages development and basic awareness of touches and gestures through open-ended exploration and play.
21 different scenes with high quality audio and abstract visuals are included.
Scenes interact differently, but together provide pleasing effects in response to various combinations of taps, presses, sweeping and controlled movements.
