Lilli's Multifunctional Activity Table

​The Multifunctional Activity Table (MFAT) is designed for the learner to initiate a large variety of cognitive activities while sitting on the floor, or in a chair, or wheelchair.

The MFAT is designed in such a way that the table top can be set at various heights to accommodate the learner.

The MFAT allows the learner to use the entire surface as a perceptual field. It also provides for a great variety of arrangements as learning environments. According to what has been placed on the table top and in the containers the leaner can choose those objects and the materials they want to play with.

Regular activities while using the MFAT:

  • improves the learner's creative capabilities
  • enlarges their object concept
  • enhancing their knowledge about which objects can be separated, piled and put together
  • gives opportunity to become familiar with many different kinds of material
  • facilitates the learning of playing constructively
  • enhances the ability to solve problems


When the MFAT is equipped according to the learner's developmental level it will promote the learner's motivation for comparing objects and the results of his activities, memory and the ability to solve problems.
