The Cerebra Innovation Centre Writing Slope

The Cerebra Innovation Centre Writing Slope

Here at the Cerebra Innovation Centre (CIC), we’ve been very busy lately making lots of exciting new products to help children with additional needs.

One such product is the new prototype writing slope. It has many innovative features that we believe make it the best writing slope available anywhere! It has been developed for any children who may need a writing slope to aid their writing, drawing, posture and hand control and also converts effortlessly into a reading stand.

Using magnets and a gas strut we have enabled lots of adjustability without using knobs and mechanisms so it looks beautiful, and the easy-open and soft-close lid removes any finger trapping risks. The reading and writing ledges help to hold papers, exercise books and reading books in place. They are interchangeable by “popping” off and “snapping” on with the magnets recessed into the faces, and they store inside the slope when not used.

One of the really exciting features is the pen holder. It flips up and down depending if you are writing/drawing or reading, and fits Berol pens directly into the block. This clever system enables children with reduced motor skills to remove and replace the pens with more independence and also by removing the pen lids, means the lids cannot be chewed or lost and eradicates the choking risk. This clever system also makes for easy checking to see if all pens are present at the end of class. The pens can be changed for dry wipe pens to work on the Formica white board finish. There is a hand hold cut out of the back for easy mobility.

The great news is that we have 10 writing slopes that are looking for new owners. All we’re asking for is a small donation of £50 to contribute towards production costs. They cost us almost £200 to make so it is only a small contribution that we are asking for and less than any other writing slope on the market.
