Bubble Columns Provide Dazzling Colors & Tranquil Bubbles... A Great Way To Develop The Visual System
columns are usually the first thing anyone notices when they first walk into a
Everyone is fascinated by the wide array of colors and the calming effect.
For children with SPD, watching one of these columns provides
a tracking activity that can help improve visual development. By watching the
tube while keeping the head still, children as well as special needs adults can
improve their spatial awareness and visual tracking.
Most bubble tubes have an amazing array of vivid colors and a range of different
patterns of color change to choose from. You can even add in ping pong balls or
fish for further visual effect. Some tubes even
vibrate, which gives the added benefit of tactile stimulation.
Interactive columns are controlled by either a hold socket or a color
controller. This allows the user to completely control the color options. Some
bubble tubes can even respond to vocalizations and sounds with a built in
microphone. This helps develop communications skills in addition to the tactile
and visual development.
Some great therapeutic benefits of staring at a bubble tube include:
strengthening visual motor integration
improve visual motor skills
improve the ability to shift gaze quickly
If the budget will allow for it, a bubble column makes a great addition to
anyone's home sensory room!
