Both the Clever Fork & Spoon Set and CleverstiX child development cutlery are now available from Winslow Resources, a trading arm of parent company ROMPA Ltd. Winslow® have specialised in providing resources to education, social and health care professionals for almost 30 years. The products are available now in time for Christmas from the Winslow Resources website, and from their 2017 catalogue.
Tania Holmes, an Occupational Therapist & Product Assistant at ROMPA explained why Winslow were keen to stock our products:
“There are many reasons why we added CleverstiX to the Winslow Resources range. Our customers include parents and therapists who have paediatric clients with impaired fine/gross motor skills impacting on ADL’s (Activities of Daily Living) for a range of reasons. If given well-designed appropriate equipment and support, individuals who have struggled with functioning for a long time can become motivated and start to independently carry out activities, simultaneously impacting on their life quality and self-esteem. The very essence of the CleverstiX design illustrates how skills are transferable across activities – by using the loops in the holes, one can develop and practice using the correct grip positioning for using pens, pencils etc. Multipurpose, fun and good to look at too!”
The news follows recently received feedback that not only on the effectiveness of the award-winning Clever Fork & Spoon Set, but also how children find them visually appealing, and are therefore more willing to use them compared to less attractive caring cutlery alternatives – thus providing a psychological and well as a physical breakthrough! Meanwhile the intense fine motor development offered by CleverstiX has recently been re-affirmed by comparing their benefits with Tweezer Grippers.
