What is Tacpac?

For those that don’t know, Tacpac is a sensory communication resource using touch and music to help communication and social skills

Tacpac draws together touch and specially composed music to create a structured half hour of sensory communication between two people. Tacpac creates sensory alignment and helps people of any age who have sensory impairment, developmental delay, complex learning difficulties, tactile defensiveness, and limited or pre-verbal levels of communication.
