When does eating spaghetti become handwriting practise?
When you’re using Cleverstix!
CleverstiX Child Development Cutlery

Enjoy less mess and quieter mealtimes as little ones have a whole lot of fun using intense focus to dine without distraction!

The special ergonomic ‘No Spring-Back’ pincer design of the award-winning CleverstiX demands control of closing and opening, acutely developing concentration and fine motor skills to assist handwriting, hand/eye co-ordination and subsequent use of other cutlery (fork, spoon, etc).

Children instinctively like to use their fingers and with dedicated rings CleverstiX simply act as an extension of them - therefore kids find them incredibly natural to use! At the same time they learn to digest food at a healthy pace.

The unique WIDE tips make CleverstiX suitable for ALL cuisines including PASTA, CHIPS, FRUIT and VEGETABLES!

CleverstiX are approved of by leading Paediatric Occupational Therapists (OTs) and are especially recommended for children with Dyspraxia/DCD and some forms of Autism/ASD. READ the National Handwriting Association's review of CleverstiX and OT assessments on SEN benefits here.

As used by Ken Hom’s own grandchildren:

Endorsements from qualified Occupational Therapists (OTs):

Joanne Harries, OT at Skybound Therapy Centre:

"Fantastic tool to help develop and promote fine motor skills for children with Autism without the need for constant physical support"
"Can be incorporated within fun and exciting activities for fine motor skill development and improvement of pencil grasp"
"Colourful and appealing tool for young children"
"Brilliant for developing motor planning skills for children with Dyspraxia"

Rosaline Van de Weyer, OT and Director of Dyspraxia UK:

“I have used these with both my own son and clients. My 8 year old son really perseveres using them - when he would resort to fingers usually! So a huge improvement there from my perspective. Colleagues have given them out to trial to 5 clients ageing from 5 - 9, with positive feedback again. A great product. ”

Endorsement from the National Handwriting Association:

“As CleverstiX are intended to be used for mealtimes the children receive substantially more input than they would through using resources for grip and pincer movement less frequently in school group activities.

The children who tested the CleverstiX really loved them and rated them as ‘totally ace’.

During mealtimes, not only could they pick up a large variety of foods but they ate more than usual.

This was particularly important for one child who normally eats very little and has been affected by a condition, which has made it difficult for her to use her fingers as well as her peers. She has struggled to develop the co-ordination necessary to cut her food independently. The CleverstiX have given her the independence with eating that she currently needs. Her consultant at GOSH has been pleased with this progress and was delighted to see the product.”
