Link Up: and Learn is an inclusive educational tool for children with and without autism providing a bridge to tackle segregation in classrooms and emotional development.
More children on the autism spectrum are attending mainstream schools. This means new ways of teaching must be adapted and more classroom activities need to enable all students to participate.
Link Up is a set of light up stacking blocks helping all children work together. Each block has whiteboard or blackboard material attached, with allocated space to slot in flash cards and other visual aids. Once a task or activity has been completed, the blocks can be stacked and light up as you build.
As well as using visual and practical learning, all children can use the emotion tracking app to reflect on their own feelings throughout the day and become more aware of people around them.
