In principle, the haptic emphasis in HIPoeces systems should serve to enhance a learner's haptic memory or at least highten awareness of touch in locations that are used for anchoring sounds and sound processes. For some learners the addition of touch to the "ganglion" of auditory-visual-kinesthetic is exceedingly powerful from the outset. For others, it develops adequately for the system to work. For some, their sense of touch seems relatively disconnected and may require some type of training as evident in the touch game in the video. The idea of working with all learners on haptic memory improvement, outside of the pedagogical process itself, may be worth exploring as well.
