I was visiting with my daughter's occupational therapist the other day. I asked about the difficulty my daughter has with opening scissors. The therapist suggested I purchase some self opening scissors to help her out. Because my daughter's ligaments are very loose, self opening scissors will protect her from hyper-extending her joints. I never knew self opening scissors existed.
