Universal Cuff for Disabilities and Special Needs
Special Education Teachers understand the importance of providing low tech, inexpensive, assistive technologies that are accessible and supportive of all of the students, right from the start.
Helping your students to thrive and flourish in the fundamentals of art, music, writing, and play is what an educator does best. Maximizing your own time and productivity becomes even more important when students have individual or special needs that require more one on one time.
No more hand over hand assistance necessary.
One-on-one individual assistance is not always possible for teachers in a classroom with many students. That's when having ready access to adaptable grip aids will enable you to provide help for several children simultaneously while fostering each child's independent spirit.
Your students with special needs can be set on task with one student painting, another writing and still another playing a musical instrument, without your hand-over-hand assistance. Students can progress at their own pace while the educator's reach and scope of work are maximized.
Providing an inclusive learning environment
All learning environments should be inclusive, accessible and supportive of every single child. The concept of inclusion means that children with disabilities have the right to learn in typical classrooms, using the same curriculum, toys, and implements as their peers. The goal is to adapt existing classroom materials so that they can be easily made accessible for all students.
- Adapts existing classroom implements
- Allows students to work at own pace
- Colorful for visual stimulation
- Can be used and reused by multiple students
- Easily wiped clean or dishwashable
- More independent play and engagement
A common refrain of teachers is "Too many students and not enough help!" When one on one assistance for each individual student is not always possible, our assortment of silicone straps allows you to supervise several children independently. One can be painting, another drawing, and still another playing a musical instrument without individual hand-over-hand assistance. Allow students to progress at their own pace and maximize educator's valuable time in the classroom.
Play Engagement Behavior
Children grow and learn through play. Assistive Technology devices such as toy adapting cuffs serve a vital role in providing successful play opportunities for children with disabilities. AT supports allow children to control and actively explore their worlds by reducing and/or removing barriers to play.

IDEA and The Role of Assistive Technology in Special Education
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires schools to provide children with disabilities the services and accommodations for each child’s unique needs, including Assistive Tech. Despite the name, these devices are not always high-tech. Low-tech devices such as EazyHold can improve function in children with both learning and physical disabilities, with a very little learning curve. Often the simplest things can make a huge difference to the student with individual needs.
