Many teachers sometimes you tell us how difficult it can be to find the right materials to meet the needs of children or adults with special educational needs. Some of the products we recommended and that many of you have told us that stand out for their use in working psychomotor skills in people with certain difficulties follow:
- CRAYONS: Crayons are perfect to work with, thanks to their softness and their lively colours. However for people who need thicker materials that allow greater control, we recommend soft crayons from Maxidacs. Their size makes them easier to grip. If you want a clean, smudge-free crayon, try Alpino Baby crayons.
- PENCILS: We recommend Thick Triangular pencils (Alpino Trimax) for their larger diameter and very soft lead. The triangular shape facilitates the correct use execution of the “peg”.
- FELT TIPPED PENS: Thick felt-tipped pens Alpino Maxi o Maxijumbo are very good options. If you prefer a triangular shape, try
- PLASTILINE AND SOFT DOUGH: Manipulating and kneading is one of the exercises most recommended by specialists. If it clay is too hard, try Alpino Baby soft dough. It air dries!
SCISSORS: Cutting with scissors stimulates eye-hand coordination. Alpino Baby scissors are made 100% of plastic, and do not cut hair, clothes or skin.
