My toddler son, who is autistic, needed help with improving his fine motor skills.
Over the last year, I have developed, ZOTTZ, Z OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY TOOLZ.

Just got my first interrupt driven sketch manufactured and it's on eBay.

Evolution of this sensory tool to develop fine motor skills:

It is helping my son a great deal, and you can see the YouTube videos on the evolution of ZOTTZ.
I strongly believe real tangible tech can help children reverse regression.
Please contact me if you need help with your child develop fine motor skills.

Z OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY TOOLZ (TM) (R)

 ZOTTZ, theraputic electronics that are fun and develop life-skills for children with occupational therapy needs.

The engine of ZOTTZ is love. Love is the path to all healing.

Features of ZOTTZ, a development fueled by the love of a father for his toddler son:

Finger strength development--- two pencil grips

Grip strength development --- two grips, one side mounted for thumb pressure and one flat for wrist strength development.

Hand-eye coordination --scissors interface.

Scissors are the critical link to hand-eye coordination that is the cornerstone of fine motor skills. This development of hand-eye coodination can help a child find the path to independent life skills as an adult.
