Scientists are currently studying if impaired prediction is behind autism. The brain makes predictions. When someone laughs or smiles, our brain makes a prediction about the reason. For example, when someone is crying, we can predict that they may be hurt in some way. Impaired prediction is when the brain has the inability to make predictions about the world. Language deficits, repetitive behaviors, and sensitivities to stimuli may be an indication that the brain cannot predict what is going on in the outside world. Individuals with autism often line items or exhibit rigid behavior. This behavior may seem irregular to typically developing individuals, but for those on the spectrum they may be just trying to create order out of the chaos. The inability to predict leads to anxiety and other behaviors that manifest themselves in autism. Currently this is just a theory, and more research and experiments need to be conducted to prove the theory.
Purchased for my daughter who is almost a year old and we play with it on a daily basis. The colors are bright and vibrant. The yellow part makes a lound crunchy sounds which my daughter loves, perfect sensory material. It come separately, you have to insert the white ball inside the mesh material and then inflate. It is very easy to do and takes just a minute or two to put together. The only downside is if you have a very small space (like myself) you have to deflate to store it since it's a bit bigger than a soccer ball or basketball.
Love this ball! Oversized, easy to grab, and sensory rewarding. The colors are vibrant, it’s easy to wash, and easy to catch. I have three kids and they can all play with this together (safely) Without any accidents. My three-year-old seems to forget how much stronger he then my one year old. Occasionally he will throw things with a bit too much force. So when the inevitable happens and he gets over excited and throws this with too much force, it doesn’t knock over his sister, and we don’t have any tears or hurt feelings. I would highly recommend this ball If you have younger kids or even sensory seeking kids.
I liked how it had the four sturdy legs and how it folded up. I wished there was one more ring on each of the toys making them longer. When my baby used this they never quite reached him and I felt like he would have enjoyed it all the more if he could hold/touch the toys. Still happy with the choice over others available.
Love the smart crib
Absolutely love it and so does my Grandson. I wanted to give my daughter one but unfortunately her crib has big rails which seems to be the trend these days. It would be nice to see a mobile with an adjustable clamp to attach to different sized crib rails.
