Leka makes a multi-sensory robotic ball with lights, sounds, and vibrations to engage children while tracking their progress. It provides a fun way to keep special needs children interested and motivated at home and in therapy. Leka has been co-developed with parents, therapists and caregivers to make therapy more accessible to children with autism, Down’s syndrome, or multiple disabilities. Leka’s goal is to help these children become more independent and improve their motor and social skills. To be clear, Leka isn’t designed to replace a therapist, it’s an additional tool for parents and caregivers.
