Our Long Loop 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. Assists children with poor motor control, including those with Dyspraxia and similar conditions.
(A non-spring version is also available, listed separately)
OTs recommend for:
- Weak grip/strength
- Poor motor control
- Training placement of the thumb while continuing to provide the benefit of the long loop handle
- Introducing the skill of opening and closing the scissors
- Young children who are able to open and close the scissors but become confused about finger placement in regular scissors
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.
