Children with cerebral palsy can express their creativity too!

I am sharing with you this project because it can be helpful for therapists, educators, parents and children, of course. Its name is Glifo.

The idea of Glifo was born to help children with a complex neurological disorder write and draw so that they could leave their marks. It was something TOG therapists witnessed while working with children every day: how important it is for them to express their inner world with a marker as their schoolmates do.
So we teamed up - TOG and fab lab OpenDot - and created Glifo. The GIF shows the latest design that is resistant, pocket-size, functional and colorful. The object is customized considering these parameters: fingers' dimension, comfortable inclination, colour and child's name.

We deal with child frustration every day because they can't express their own feelings, communicate with others and leave a mark on a black page so we hope this project can be helpful.
