What does your child’s current pencil grip look like? Pencil grasp development varies for every child. Possible variations in development can depend on the following: - fine motor skills and coordination - sitting posture and position - shoulder stability - environment and learning method
I teach a human development course at the college level. When we get to fine motor skills, I like to show images of the different grips and explain why it’s important especially for teachers and parents to notice when a child’s grip is wrong and how to fix it.
