Why SENcos are investing in ROMBi

Are you a busy SENco looking for effective tools or additional support? If yes, we have the perfect support tool for you!

We recognise that as a SENco, your days are extremely packed; juggling responsibility for children with special (or additional) needs in your school alongside your teaching role.

There is always so much to do and finding the key to supporting each pupil’s individual needs can be challenging.

We’re here to help!

ROMBi puzzle is a versatile tool that is highly recommended, supporting people of all ages to access their fundamental abilities to focus and learn that they didn’t know they had.

How does it work?

ROMBi prioritises spatial awareness as a basic component of perception. This is as vital for effective learning and problem solving as it is for physical dexterity.

1.Organising Thoughts & Extending Abilities:

Through structured handplay, you can work directly on the puzzle with a pupil with SEN to increase their underlying capability. Increasing coordination between the actions of their mind and body enables pupil's to process information more easily.

They can then use this information to organise activities in the most effective way for what they want to achieve. Ideal for the classroom!

The design of ROMBi learning blocks is perfect for opening new pathways for learning and extending capability. Whether in literacy, numeracy, greater independence, social and emotional interaction, ROMBi puzzle play lays stronger foundations for inclusion inside the classroom and beyond.

2.Multiple Uses

We have also found that the puzzle works well for responding creatively to behavioural challenges, especially those rooted in frustration due to ability gaps, communication issues or difficulties with emotional regulation.


The more immediate effects are perceptual. In pupils this means greater clarity, awareness, organisation, improved memory and ultimately attention.

Shifts in pupil’s perception has powerful effects on their participation, as they see themselves becoming increasingly capable. You can expect to see developments in pupils' abilities across many areas as they become more ‘hands-on’ with the puzzle.

4.Synaptic Connections

Sustained structured stimulation of perception prompts the development of new synaptic connections to support that function. This is an effect of what medical science refers to as ‘neuroplasticity’ of the brain.

As learners, we develop according to how we use our abilities. The more we use a function, the more developed it becomes.

5.Easing Stress

Feedback shows that regular ROMBi play is having positive effects on mental and physical conditions. Being able to focus completely on the puzzle draws attention away from surrounding stresses.
