Developed with the help of a Learning Support teacher, this slope is designed to allow children to work at the optimal angle to maintain good posture whilst being able to hold a book or their work at the same time – saving desk space and making reading, writing and copying more comfortable; this will help the child to concentrate on their work in an organised space. The slope is modern and versatile having a number of different uses including as a coloured overlay, a desk tidy (store equipment underneath) or a write-on wipe- off surface. It can easily be used with a clipboard to hold worksheets, a word mat or notes.
The slope is set at the recommended angle of 20 degrees and has rubber grips on the bottom to prevent the slope from moving on the desk. The slope is smooth to encourage children to hold their work and sit comfortably but, for children who struggle, the slope can be used with a bulldog clip or dycem to secure the work in place. Dimensions: L35 x W30 x H13cm. Special thanks to Learning Support Teacher and consultant, Carey Latham, for working with us on the design of this slope.
