MONTVALE, NJ (November 17, 2021) - Photon Education, the creator of the Photon robot and innovative educational solutions, launched the Special Education Teaching Kit, which is distributed exclusively in the US by Eduscape, the leading K-12 professional learning organization. The kit is part of the Photon ecosystem, encompassing a one-of-a-kind robot, accessories, and seven teaching kits that span across several content areas.

The Special Education Teaching Kit was designed for those who are non-verbal, need behavioral/social-emotional support, and/or need academic support. In this set, the robot plays the role of a student’s companion in the world of confusing social norms and other everyday challenges. When learners feel safe they feel open to trying new things and working on challenging tasks. The robot is patient and can repeat the same activities many times over, but it can also surprise, entertain and motivate students to give their best.

With 50 fully developed lesson plans, teachers can:

  • Support students’ emotional development by enabling them to identify their own emotions and helping them understand how emotions affect their behavior.

  • Help develop communication skills with the included Augmentative and Alternative Communication system cards.

  • Increase focus and engagement using the Photon robot and engaging educational games.

  • Support balanced development with activities and methods adapted to their individual needs, abilities, and limitations.
