HandiThings is a family owned and operated business established in 1998 by Mary Ann, an Occupational Therapy Assistant, and her husband Greg, a designer and engineer. While working for a large school district, Mary Ann found that the majority of her students had handwriting difficulties. A unique tool was needed that would facilitate the development of an appropriate pencil grasp. This would allow the student to focus on the basics of letter formation, size, and line/space adherence. To satisfy this need, she and her husband conceived and developed their first product: the HandiWriter. All of their subsequent products have been developed from the direct needs encountered in the educational and therapeutic environment. They now have a wide variety of fine motor and weighted products being sold throughout the US and around the world.
The Wright Stuff is proud to offer writing aids, hand weights for writing, weighted items and fine motor activities from HandiThings.
Fine motor finger mats are a great learning tool for special needs, childhood development, strengthening finger strength and coordination.
