Our Long Loop Self-Opening Scissors have been designed with an extended loop to give increased strength and control over the cutting action with the added benefit of a discreet spring which automatically reopens the scissors, allowing the child to concentrate on manipulating the paper and directing the cut.
For hand-writing and cutting activities make sure the child is well supported with feet firmly on the ground. Table at hip height. Use a box or adjustable chair to assist.
OTs recommend for…
-Older children who prefer a more conventional styling but are unable to manage opening and closing the scissors
-Poor grip strength
-Reduced motor control
