I am an occupational therapist who has been working as an OT for over 25 years. For the past 20 years I have been working for a public school system. I service a wide variety of children. One concern I have had is with tracing aids and the lack of aids to assist children with cutting. Two years ago I was playing with a student of mine who is blind. He really wanted to do the same activities (cutting, drawing and making items) as his fellow classmates were. Well, to make a long story short, my husband and I came up with Traceables and Cuttables. These also allowed the children with sensory processing concerns to trace without their hands getting in the way and to cut, getting sensory feedback to help them follow the shapes. With the help of government agencies, our products are now on the market. We have had great reviews. Teachers, parents and most of all children have enjoyed them and find drawing and cutting made easier. You may see our products at www.CreateableLearningConcepts.com

I just want to say that I have purchased these products for my preschool special needs children, and I absolutely love them! They help build the children's self-confidence so much, and the typical children in the class love to come over and use them, too. I am seeing so much more creativity in all the children, and the bright colors are just perfect to help encourage them. Ms. Wharton has developed a great set of products! Try them yourself, and you will find you will see the same results!
