Company Details / Crayon Rocks
Crayon Rocks Founder Barbara Lee taught children with special needs for 23 years. She invented Crayon Rocks after being inspired by Jan Olsen, OTR, and the Handwriting Without Tears program. Barbara learned from Jan how important it was to develop early a good tripod grip. Handwriting skills depends upon this.
Since a child's first writing tool is usually a crayon, that crayon should be one that encourages him or her to use thumb, first and second fingers in a tripod grip. This is what makes Crayon Rocks a wonderful tool for fine motor development.
A Little Goes a Long Way
A really good crayon should take very little effort in applying great swaths of color to the paper. In fact, that crayon should be as much like paint as possible. Rich color that goes on smoothly and easily helps little fingers to grow strong as they spill their creative ideas onto paper.
Barbara wanted a coloring tool that students with grip strength problems and disorders effecting fine motor control could use AND enjoy.
