Pencil Grip - Solo
€0.57 ex. VAT
This pencil grip is similar in ways to the Grippy but is larger. It has matching indentations for right and left handed writers. Right hand children place their thumb in the "R" space, and left hand children place their thumb in the "L" space. This solo pencil grip has better positioning for left handed children than the pencil grip grippy. Supplied in a variety of colours.
1. There is more to correcting a pencil grasp then just putting a pencil grip on a pencil. The child also needs to develop strength in all the right places. This means building a stable support by working on core strength, shoulder, elbow, and wrist stability.
2. The child needs to assume a proper seating position, this means no dangling feet from kitchen chairs. If the feet are not flat on the floor then the child is not stable and balanced, this will have a negative effect on hand writing that no pencil grip will fix.
3. Remember that the pencil grip isn’t glued to the child’s fingers in the correct position. So it needs to be monitored or the child can start compensating around the pencil grip as well.
4. If the child is struggling to isolate their little finger and ring finger, give them something small to hold in these fingers. This will keep the little finger and ring finger tucked out of the way.
