Short Cuts is a scissor adapter that provides graded sensory awareness of grasp and release movements and expedites mastery of cutting skills. The bumper between the handles prevents the scissor blades from closing, allowing only short, successful cutting strokes on the line. The verbal cue to “tiptoe on the line” will encourage the child’s adaptation to the feel of the decreased movement of the scissor handles. When mastery using the large bumper is attained, twist Short Cuts to the small bumper for more independent graded movement.
Younger clients should use scissors under supervision.|
