Learning to Write

getattachment.aspxMy 5-year-old daughter, Jane, has had trouble holding a pencil properly—she likes to grasp it with her whole fist—and would fuss when we tried to correct her (“This is the way I do it!”). After her Pre-K teacher acknowledged that this was a problem we should help her work on, we discovered The Writing C.L.A.W., a unique pencil grip that shows children exactly where to place their thumb, index finger and middle finger. It’s so simple to use and Jane feels a sense of satisfaction that it helps her hold her pencil the way grown-ups want her to. I am sure that once she uses it for a while, it will become much easier for her fingers to find their proper place without it. I ordered a pack of five from Therapro, a terrific source sorts of products used by occupational therapists—and many you can use yourself at home. But you can order a single C.L.A.W. in your child’s favorite color directly from the manufacturer.
