OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY TIP
My learner and their parents want them to hold a pencil "the right way", how do I teach them?
Work on hand strengthening activities using playdough (see if they can imitate rolling it like a snake or into a ball, hide small beads inside for them to "dig out", squirt guns or spray bottles with water work on strengthening).
Color with smaller utensils like crayons broken in half, small pieces of chalk, golf pencils, or paint with Q-tips to facilitate more mature grasping patterns
Color on an easel or paper taped onto a wall/door to increase their shoulder strength and stability to support their grasp
