"Thumbs down" from pediatric occupational therapist
on April 17, 2015
As a pediatric occupational therapist with extensive experience in the area of teaching handwriting, I was incredibly disappointed with this product. The lines are indeed embossed which you can feel when you rub your finger over the lines. However, the embossing is not sufficient to obtain any kinesthetic or tactile feedback when writing on the paper. I came to this conclusion after writing on the paper using a wide variety of writing tools and placing the paper on a variety of surfaces prior to writing. I surveyed children using the paper under the same circumstances. The result was the same: the embossed lines are not sufficient to provide any therapeutic benefit. Additionally, even though the cover is printed with the lines oriented as with a typical notebook, the lines are actually printed perpendicular to the cover. If your goal is to provide a student with paper that provides therapeutic benefit without drawing attention to "being different," then this paper achieves neither.
