VELCRO® is such a useful piece of equipment for all kinds of applications and as a result we supply a number of sectors with VELCRO® Brand tape and coins.
One sector in particular finds VELCRO® Brand Tapes a crucial bit of kit, and that’s Special Education Needs (SEN) schools.
The versatility of VELCRO® makes it an indispensable tool for special needs education. It’s used to create a range of interactive learning aids that are an essential element for educating children with moderate or severe learning difficulties.
By attaching hook VELCRO® on one side of an object and loop VELCRO® onto the surface you want to attach the object to, static displays are transformed into interactive experiences that children can move around. This kinaesthetic, visual learning is proven to help engage children with learning difficulties and reinforce learning. This technique can be incorporated into all kinds of activities and lessons, from reading and numeracy to science and more.
VELCRO® also makes it easy to create sensory boards or walls for those with sensory processing disorders. You can attach a range of visual and tactile stimuli to help aid development and engage children with their surrounding environment.
Our range of VELCRO® Brand Tapes are self-adhesive, which makes using them really quick and easy for teachers and teaching assistants to use. However, if you want to save time cutting tape, VELCRO® Brand Coins are a great, speedy option that are worth having on hand. Simply peel the coins off the roll and stick them onto whatever it is you intend to stick and it’ll be safely attached in seconds.
