Our Dual Control Teaching Scissors have been developed under consultation with Occupational Therapists to assist the child who:

  • Has poor visuomotor co-ordination
  • Lacks the strength to complete the cutting action
  • Has a tremor and cannot place the scissors at a given starting point
  • Has poor background/foreground differentiation.

Also ideal for use in Early Years settings to teach the opening/closing action of scissor skills.

The child uses the loops furthest from the blade, whilst the adult places their fingers over the child’s hand and through the loops nearest the blade to assist with placement, guidance and strength.

  • Double loop handles - Allows therapist/teacher and child to simultaneously complete the cutting action:
  • Wide finger contact area - Ensures a comfortable grip which can be maintained throughout use
  • Colour coded handles - Easily identify correct pair to use : Blue handles = Right Hand, Green handles = Left Hand
  • High quality stainless steel blade - Provides longevity and cuts through paper with ease


OTs recommend for:

  • Introducing young children to scissor use
  • Supporting children unable to hold the scissors independently
  • Demonstrating scissor use to children who find it difficult to follow instructions
  • Encouraging bilateral hand use
  • Reduced grip strength and motor control
  • Supporting children with a visual impairment or a tremor
  • Developing confidence in reluctant scissor users
