Visual impairment continues to interfere with early learning development in newborn and young children. Sensory pods are dedicated to satisfying non-visual sensory needs for the enjoyment of visually impaired infants and toddlers. These pods encourage interactive play through means of sound, light, scent, and texture. Sensory pods can be hung anywhere in a living environment to initiate play and exploration; through these possible interactions caregivers and parents are provided a platform on which they can establish learning exercises.
