Active Learning Space

Reaching and Spatial Orientation

The Little Room is described in detail in Dr. Nielsen's book, Space and Self. It is a piece of equipment that provides students with a safe environment for independent play and exploration. Many children are more willing to tactually explore objects when they are in control of an activity and can anticipate what might happen.

The Little Room is one of the many pieces of Perceptualizing Aids that can be used to help a learner develop the ability to reach and grasp. Other equipment includes include the Activity Wall, Echo Bucket, Mobile and Scratch, Position and Grasp/Grab Boards.

Dr. Nielsen tried several designs for the Little Room before settling on a design that provided an environment to make use of both auditory and tactile feedback as well as durability, safety and proper ventilation.
