2. Try pencil grips or other writing aids for comfort
There is a range of different pencil grips that are designed to help children with all sorts of learning difficulties, and dysgraphia is just one of the difficulties that pencil grips could help with.
Children with dysgraphia can sometimes ten to grip the pencil too tightly and even hold their wrist, arm or entire body at an unusual angle. As every case of dysgraphia is personal to the individual child, there isn’t a one size fits all, fail-safe solution for the use of pencil grips.
The good news is that there are so many pencil grips available to be experimented with, that it shouldn’t belong at all before you find the one that suits the child you are trying to help.
There are pencil grips that are designed to be chunky and fat, as well as pencil grips which allow children to hold the pencil in a way that would be considered irregular. Trial and error is the best plan of action where pencil grips are concerned.
