Developing Pencil Grasp
Tips from an OT
What about grippers? Some of my favorites:
Grotto Grip and Cross over Grip - try with students who hook thumb over their index finger or do not know quite where to place their fingers. These grips give an firm spot to place the thumb and index finger.
The Pencil Grip - the traditional type grip. Try with students who tuck their thumb under their index finger or if they have hand fatigue. This grip comes in a jumbo and regular size.
