A Resonance Board is a thin, flexible sheet of wood that gives tactile and auditory feedback whenever the child moves. When the child kicks the board, there is a sound and a vibration. This feedback encourages the child to repeat the movement, and eventually to experiment with other movements as well. The child moves independently, without an adult manipulating his or her body. Sounds created by the child's movements resonate from the wood. This immediate feedback can help the brain integrate motor activity and listening skills.
Resonance boards are used in school for a variety of sessions including sensory stories, music and movement sessions. We have several large resonance boards in school and small, tray size individual boards which can be used for personalised work.
