From the Voice of Experience – A Stylus Recommendation

Ciara Campbell shared this valuable comment yesterday on a stylus recommendation and also agreed to let me to share it in a post …

“I’m 32 have spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, I got an iPad 2 about a month ago. My fine motor function is affected, but I do have the ability to hold a pencil, drive my powerchair, button a shirt etc. I have been using a telescoping stylus from Stylus R Us  called the Big Screen Jr. It’s great, it requires no pressure to use. It has also been used successfully by a student with severe cerebral palsy who wears a hand splint and has no fine motor function.”

Here is a bit more about Ciara’s recommended stylus, the Big Screen Jr.

A telescoping stylus, very light weight with a nice handle. Sells for $39.99 on Stylus R Us (SRU) website. They feature many more styluses on their website.

Thanks to Ciara for sharing!
