Writing and Drawing
This is the most common method for recording your learning within our Education system. This section includes topics such as holding a pencil, drawing, handwriting, posture and positioning to enhance handwriting, strategies to support those who are left hand dominant and alternative tools that can be used.
Pencil grip is only one part of handwriting. In nursery and school a variety of ways of pencil holds will be seen. Most children develop a pencil hold that is comfortable for them. The type of pencil grip your child uses is only a problem if it is making writing difficult to read, is not at a reasonable speed or makes their hand sore or tired.
