Occupational therapy can help kids improve their cognitive, physical and motor skills which has the overall ability to enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment. After being inspired by Jan Olsen, ORT, and the Handwriting Without Tears program, our mission was to create a product that would aid in the development of motor skills, specifically those needed for handwriting.
Working at an easel or when standing up at a desk is a good way to help children engage the muscles in their entire arm.
Occupational therapists, school districts, special education teachers, and other professional clinics that work with students with disabilities are encouraged to apply for wholesale pricing by registering.
Parent Tip: Encourage your child to think of these crayons as "paint" and to "scrub" the paper. Remember, developmentally, 3 year olds are suppose to be scribbling and experimenting with large swaths of color...not making drawings of real objects.
“I bought Crayon Rocks for my 7 year old deaf -blind, developmentally delayed granddaughter and one set for her OT/sensory integration therapist. Amy talks with a communication device using her fingers but has only recently started to hold crayons, paint brushes etc. I've been cutting crayons and pencils to make them shorter, so I was intrigued by the product. Amy took to them immediately.” – Mary Ellen Shattman
