  • To Refine the Thermic Perception 
  • Invite the child to the presentation. 
  • Show the child how to bring the box; he carries it to the table.
  • Show the child how you are going to feel the tablets. Present the underside of your wrist and rub your wrist on your jeans to sensitize. You and the child do this.  
  • Take out one set of the tablets from the box and place on the table. Place one tablet in front of the child. Feel the tablet with the underside of your wrist. Place the tablet near the top of the table. 
  • Place the next tablet in front of the child. Feel the tablet with the underside of your wrist once again.  
  • Feel the rest of the tablets in this same fashion, remembering to place the tablets near the top of the table in a line.   
  • When you have finished, take out the second set of tablets and place them stacked on the table. Take them out of the box one by one.  
  • Put the blindfold on your eyes. 
  • Now are you going to try to pair up the tablets. Unstack and feel the tablets one by one, and feel the tablets at the top of the table to try and pair them. Do this one by one setting the pairs to the left side of the table. 
  • Once you have paired up all the tablets, take your blindfold off. 
  • Check to see if you have paired the tablets correctly. 
  • Disorder the tablets in two sets/two stacks. 
  • Invite the child to do the presentation.
