Block Mounted Stylus - April 4, 2015
Tuesday, April 07, 2015 9:10 AM

Some students cannot grip a stylus to use on a tablet, not to mention styluses are a spendy item when so many have to be provided. The Assistive Technology Center found a source on Alibaba.com that sells them for .22 each when purchased in bulk. Next an occupational therapist found a variety of small wooden blocks with different shapes that worked well for small hands. Volunteers at ATC drilled the blocks to the correct size, trimmed the styluses to a shorter length and then mounted them in the blocks. Another simple solution to a big need!
