In the box: 4 game cards (colored on one side, black and white on the other), 1 transparent large chip board, 37 round chips in four colors
The board is 8.5 X 12.25 inches and has 54 plastic round nubs that you snap the chips over. They are not hard to push on, but fit snug enough to stay on. On the back of the chip board there are four small clips that hold the picture in place. The board can be used flat, or on a slanted surface. I usually clip it to a slant board. The chips are smooth plastic and measure 1.25 inches across.
The size of the chips (back view).
- Put one chip in in the individual's hand, upside-down and at the base of the fingers. Ask him to use the thumb to push the chip to the fingertips and orient for placement.
- Take the picture out and use the clear chip board. Put one colored chip on the board and ask the individual to scan the board, find the chip, and pull it off.
- Take the picture out and place a column of chips, top to bottom, on the furthest edge from the dominant hand. Ask the individual to cross midline and get the green chip, then the blue chip, etc.
