About

I am Andrew Short 39 Years old in Canberra Australia, I am doing my masters of disability studies. To contact me, leave a comment under a post, or for general comment leave a comment here or email playwithblindfolds@blindsensoryexploration.com , please feel free to send in your game ideas, therapy stories, tips or any thing else apart from adult material. My flickr gallery where I post my own pictures is at https://www.flickr.com/photos/blindsensoryexploration/  This is just a personal blog where I share my interest in blindfolding and blindfold games. Since my first blindfold game I have been interested in blindfold games, collecting and inventing blindfold game ideas. This blog is where I share blindfold games ideas and say what part of therapy they may or may not help in. Nothing more, this is a blindfold games hobby website where I share ideas with anyone interested. I have no formal qualifications in therapy and I am not registered to offer therapy. I no do try to pretend this is anything more than me sharing blindfold games, that I make up as I go along. If your child needs help see a real therapist. But if you after that find my ramblings interesting and try any at your own risk great, please send me some feedback.

 

Disclaimer the more legal  sounding one

http://www.blindsensoryexploration.com provides this website as a personal discussion of one man’s views. The author and publisher of this website and the accompanying resources have prepared this website and the accompanying resources to the best of his abilities and with his best intentions. The information contained in this website and the accompanying resources is strictly for educational purposes. Therefore, if you wish to apply ideas contained in this website and the accompanying resources, you are taking full responsibility for your actions. As indeed some of these activities have not been tested and are simply ideas.

Childhood disorders, learning disorders and developmental delays cannot be diagnosed or treated through this website! I am not qualified to discuss any one’s disability except my own, and do not pretend to speak for anyone but myself. Please contact your local Occupational Therapist if there are significant gaps in your child’s progress. If your child is currently attending Occupational Therapy, these activities can be used to supplement what he is doing there, but always check with your child’s Occupational Therapist first!

As with all activities involving children, please take great care to ensure all sharp objects are moved out of reach, and that parental supervision is available at all times. Some activities suggested on this website make use of small objects that may cause a choking hazard for young children. Keep small objects out of reach of harms way! Because these activities on this website require blindfolding, a teacher or therapist or parent must be present, it is better if an adult blindfolds a child to ensure that the blindfold is firm and secure but not too tight. It should be snug and completely blind, ensuring that they can not see anything before proceeding with the activity, if one is not using sleep masks, the darker the cloth the better, also parents can best determine how long their child can cope with being blindfolded for and that appropriate encouragement comfort and reassurance is given, it might be that playing a blindfold game on your lap is the best way to introduce blindfolding to your child. My sure you have turns when you are blindfolded and “see” if your child can pull the wool over your eyes!

Some of the activities require physical activity or exercise. Please only demonstrate these exercises if you are medically fit to do so. Your child should only carry out these activities if he is medically fit to do so. If in doubt, please consult your doctor. And if any activity causes any kind of pain and discomfort to you or your child, stop at once and consult your doctor.

Photographs have not been distorted or altered. Every effort has been made to give accurate information and suggestions. However, results are entirely dependent on the persons demonstrating and taking part in the activities and games. The level of success attained depends on the time devoted to taking part in the activities and games, and the resources and skills of the persons taking part. Since these factors vary between individuals, I cannot guarantee success of individuals, am I responsible for any actions of any persons.
