--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: To allow individuals with arthritis, limited fine motor skills or loss of dexterity use a stylus to activate the zoom feature on an iPad. Typically, users use a three finger double tap to activate and adjust the size of the screen to suit their needs. Individuals with limited hand use may have difficulty tapping the screen making it difficult to access the zoom feature to enlarge the screen.
MATERIALS USED: Three standard size styluses, one mini size stylus, foam board, electrical tape, Exacto Knife, pencil

PREPARATION:
1. The first step is to draw out and cut the foam board to place the styluses on. This picture can be used for a general outline. The frame should be just a little bit shorter than the length of the stylus. Actual size is not that important but the styluses need a solid frame to stay together.
2. Next, put the three long styluses onto the frame. The difficult part is that they all need to be at the same height to work correctly when touching the iPad. I found standing the styluses upside down to align to be the easiest way to do this. After you have the three long styluses taped onto the board, then add the mini stylus.
