A Tangle Puzzle for Matthew to help keep him occupied

Posted Mar 6, 2019
Matthew is an amazing and vibrant child. Although he is non-verbal, he has no lack of feelings and expressions that he currently shares using gestures and sign language. He is working with his therapists to communicate using assistive technology on an iPad. A Tangle Puzzle is the perfect way to help keep Matthew occupied while trying to learn new ways of communication.

Matthew is 17 years old and lives in Newark, NJ

Meet Matthew, a special young man who is affectionately referred to as Matty Matt because of his happy go lucky, lovable personality. Matthew is described as a mild-mannered young man with an infectious smile and docile heart. Matthew communicates his needs by using gestures, touch and sounds. He is also able to communicate using The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). Matthew is very energetic and loves to be outdoors. He particularly enjoys playgrounds and amusement parks. His favorite holiday is Independence Day because he loves to watch the fireworks. When indoors, Matthew likes to watch television or educational shows on the iPad.
