There’s some that I didn’t think would really be involved, and those are the ones that love it the most. The first thing you see when they start playing is a big smile, and it’s amazing to see some of my non-verbal people open up and shine. It’s honestly like magic, and the smile - they can just go on and on and on and on. It is absolutely amazing! One additional great benefit I see is that it surprised many of them that they can do it. A lot of times they’ve been told what they can’t do, but this interactive music experience makes them feel like they can do anything. For the short time that they’re doing it, they feel like they have no limitations to what they can do. The experience is a 10 out of 10, but honestly, it’s priceless. It really is. I’ve seen my group open up and smile and shine - there’s no number you can give it, it’s just priceless.” said GLORIA Quinn, Assistant Program Manager, Bethany Ranch Home.About the GameThe Jam Studio VR Education & Health Care Enterprise Edition (the “App”) provides a broad range of interactive educational, physical, and therapeutic songs, games, exercises, experiences, and benefits for use with family, friends, schools, teachers, special needs organizations and programs, therapy and rehab facilities, therapist, and other professionals.
