Rol 'n' Write
We are now stocking the Rol 'n' Write alphabet and numbers. I first came across these when working with a child with autism who had additional gross and fine motor difficulties, he found learning letter formations extremely difficult and we used these as part of a multisensory programme to help reinforce the skills needed for writing in a fun way.
These plastic 'cards' have a path which a ball bearing follows to demonstrate the correct formation. Choose any letter or number, place the ball on the starting point – as indicated by the arrow – and watch it roll along the groove, tracking the correct formation. The ball even retraces its own path for letters such as ‘d’ or ‘p’.
