This beeper foam ball provides auditory stimulation for students, encouraging them to find it and handle it appropriately! It’s ideal for students with visual impairments and can be a great addition to adapted PE classes.
More than helping you keep track of balls as they bound and roll around your activity area, this sensory beeper ball for adapted PE is a great tool for reigning in focus and providing stimulation to students. A loud beeping module is located within the ball, allowing students to bounce, rolled, kicked, or tossed while it’s beeping. Students with vision impairments will rely on the sound to help them keep track of the ball, while students with autism will be captivated by the sound and focused on the activity at hand.
These 8.25” dia balls are constructed with coated-foam and designed to withstand heavy institutional use. The foam is low-density, with a texture that makes it appealing to grip and handle. The cover is also rip-, crack-, and pick-proof to ensure longevity.
Beeping module operates on a single 9V battery (not included).
One of the 15 standards for adapted PE is communication. This ball complements or replaces the need for visual communication, encouraging students to communicate in other ways. For example, students can listen to the beeping of the ball during partner toss a catch games, to help track it as it moves and to respond accordingly with their actions.
