I am very proud to share my latest post on Therapro, a terrific company that I have used for years to find quality therapy equipment. They were nice enough to allow me to be a guest blogger this month, and so I wanted my readers to have the chance to go over there and check out my scissors post. Here it is: Helping Little Kids Cut .
Therapro sells a wide variety of scissors for use in therapy and at home, so if you are not sure what you need, ask your occupational therapist for some advice. My best suggestion is safety first; don’t buy a scissor that will cut skin unless you know that your child will be able to respond to your safety guidelines. After that, some kids need a scissor that opens back up for them after they close it, and some need more physical assist to close the scissor as well. The best scissor is the one that your child will use and will assist them to be successful.
To learn any skill, it helps if a child is interested and engaged. Getting them there can be a problem. That is what this post is all about; the preparation and presentation that makes kids want to learn. So take a look at my post on Therapro’s site, and let me know what you think!!
