Paint brushes for children with varying disabilities

Paint brushes for children with varying disabilitiesAn occupational therapist who is also a panel member works in a school for children with a variety of disabilities. They cannot always grip the paint brushes which are used in art classes and special ones available commercially are not always suitable.

A range of brushes was made, with handles with various types of grip and angles of holding. The parts used were mainly plastic plumbing fittings and soft rubber or plastic water tap spouts. All the children can now take part in the art activities, including those for whom standard paint brushes are unsuitable.
