Through the Assistive Technologies program,
the American Outreach Foundation provides
tools tailored for occupational therapists that
engage children with learning and
developmental disabilities (i.e. attention
deficit disorder, autism, dyslexia, visual

These "work stations," called Slanto, are low-
technological devices similar to clipboards.
Slanto is an adjustable slant board that has
been proven to be an educational asset, grasping children's awareness in everyday learning and
creative activities where they previously held little or no interest.
A child with learning/developmental disabilities may find it difficult to express preferences. The originality
and uniqueness of Slanto is that the workable surface is easily adjusted into 14 different slanted
positions for a better experience reading, writing, or in activity based work.
There are many benefits for slanto to be included in the classroom or at home:
Promotes visual motor skills (better placement of
shoulder, arm, hand)
Provides better support for holding pen/pencil
Creates an easier to reach work surface (keeps
paper/material in place)
Helps with posture (A higher line of vision promotes an
Allows visual tracking for reading (Reduces eye strain)
Slanto provides an "eye trigger" that offers the flexibility for the child to adjust it, on his/her own, into a
position that feels most comfortable so as to learn autonomously and effectively, in ways that transcend
cultural and language barriers.
All products sold by Assistive Technologies are manufactured, produced and distributed in the U.S.A.
