The Clothespin Straw is an adapted straw for those individuals with grasping and upper extremity disabilities to make it easier to drink from a cup without holding the cup or the straw. This would be a nice adaptation for children with visual impairments since the straw would not move.  Also suitable for children who have difficulty picking up a cup to drink from it.
