Pens, pencils and brushes
A variety of tools may be used to record on paper, some of which are dictated by the nature of the task to be undertaken. There are times when the choice of tool will also be influenced by the abilities and disabilities of the user. For example, a felt-tipped pen will be more easily controlled by the unsteady hand than one with a ballpoint. Techniques other than marking paper directly with pen, pencil or brush will help people with motor planning difficulties produce more satisfying art and graphic work (Chapter 6). Being aware of the range of tools which is available and their qualities will help in making the best choice for both the task being undertaken and the abilities of the user.
