How it all started
TACPAC was created for children with PMLD, SLD and various learning difficulties in response to the total lack of appropriate sensory resources.
We improvised music and made various textured objects available which matched the texture of the music and made these available to our pupils. The result was very exciting.
To cut a long story short, we repeated the session for many weeks. The other staff became enthusiastic, and asked us to make it into something more permanent, easy to use and transport, so they could do this too.
The whole process was great fun, and very rewarding to see how many children responded so positively to the music and the touch. Today Tacpac reaches people of all ages and abilities, all over the World.
