This resource has already proven helpful to me as I begin therapy using these tools. It is hard to explain to parents, caregivers, and others who interact with clients who have sensory motor impairments that they need a little 'more' feedback and this manual truly helps and rationalize the different uses for these tools.
Tips and suggestion and simple and easy to understand. This is a great reference guide for therapists nakisha
This should come WITH every z-vibe..it's a great starter kit for anyone and has information that is helpful to families as well as the therapist working with the child! Anita
This book is a great reference for any therapist needing quick access to information on how, when and why to use the ZVibe for a variety of purposes. It's easy to carry, easy to use and could also be used to explain the techniques to parents.
It guided me in the use of the Z vibe for oral estimulation. Very useful and interesting. Sol
A must have if you want to get the most out of these products Anne
This manual is easy to use and provides some great tips for working with the z-vibe. It's written by a speech and language pathologist, so most of the tips are geared toward that specialty. Marley
