As children play on these intriguingly designed boards, they become familiar with the curves and angles underlying print and cursive writing.The boards also stimulate bilateral integration i.e. the co-ordination between the left and right hands which strengthens the communication between the left and right sides of the brain. Bilateral integration is an essential developmental skill that children need to cope at school.Doodling on these boards strengthens fingers and improves pencil control. The spiral boards follow the development of childrens finger movements which start off big and become smaller. The double spirals provide bilateral integration practice as the left and right hands work simultaneously. Strong fingers, efficient pencil control and co-ordination between the left and right hands are essential for writing.
