Abstract
The project creates a rehabilitation intervention prototype, My Scrivener TM, for fine motor skill development and instruction in printing. My Scrivner TM consists of two personal computers, two force-feedback peripheral haptics devices, a cable or internet connection linking the two workstations and associated software. The project develops new classroom-ready instructional software incorporating existing telhaptics software (proSense) and a haptics computer peripheral device (Sensible Phantom Ommi). An Advisory panel provides technical input from the perspectives of practicing school-based therapists, a handwriting researcher, an assistive technology specialist, and a physiatrist.
