What is TACPAC?

There is a compatible link between the sensory world of touch and the sensory world of music. Tacpac focuses on aligning these sensory forces.

Tacpac combines the sense of touch and music through social interaction. It  is delivered via an interaction between 2 people – a giver and a receiver. The session is structured and takes place in an emotionally safe environment, clear of other sensory interferences.

The Benefits

Tacpac is hugely beneficial for people who have sensory processing difficulties. This can mean anyone of any age or stage of ability. Tacpac is effective with:

  • young children
  • adults and older people
  • anyone who may be suffering from sensory impairment or loss of memory

Anecdotal evidence speaks for itself. This has been gathered from :

  • parents
  • caregivers
  • teachers
  • learning disability nurses
  • speech therapists
  • psychologists
  • occupational therapists

Relaxation, Communication and Participation is accelerated and supercedes expectations. Tacpac has an inbuilt sense of humour available if the giver is able to access their own sense of fun. If you don’t have a sense of humour, it just isn’t funny!

Tacpac is beneficial for the giver too, providing:

  • a structured group activity for about half an hour
  •  a focus on pathways of learning, in a natural and easy way.
  •  instant record keeping, and development which is easy to track.
  • a relaxing time, or a challenging time, depending on the stage of the receiver, and indeed on the experience of the giver.
