As well as confirming the aid autism brand as the encompassing brand for my project, I have been researching different ways of creating jigsaw puzzles and making them even more interactive through their shape:
Some of the shapes can be adapted to fit a number of different ways. Just trying to explore if it is worth venturing outside of realms of traditional jigsaws. I created a different shape of jigsaw to see what the results were vs a traditional jigsaw style:
After taking both models to my autistic cousin to test and also testing it myself. It was concluded that the traditional shape of the jigsaws was just fine and there was no real need to overcomplicate the shape. Therefore i will be sticking to the traditional jigsaw shape and keeping it as simple as possible for the children.
