Polpoo / autism diagnosis toy

Polpoo
Polpoo

Although autism doesn`t have a cure, its characteristics can be attenuated through early diagnosis and treatment. Polpoo is an auxiliary system aimed for the use of the medical professional for interaction with the child during routine exams, focusing on the observation of early signs of classic autism on children from 18 to 36 months old. By providing a wide range of play possibilities, including its combined use with other tools available in the doctor`s office, and several cognitive and sensorial stimuli, Polpoo allows for a faster and more accurate diagnosis.
