Triangular Pencil Grip 5 Pack
About this deal
The Pencil Grip is the original ergonomic writing aid developed by educational therapist Dr. Lois Provda, In the adaptive tripod grasp, the child places the pencil between the index and middle fingers rather than within the traditional web space. They grasp the pencil shaft with the thumb, index, and middle fingers. The placement of the pencil between the index and middle fingers provides ample support and stability allowing for good pencil control, and less hand and finger fatigue. Sometimes the easiest way to ensure a better grip on a pencil is by getting a smaller pencil into those hands. Golf pencils are some of the best tools for smaller hands, as they are the right size. The use of larger pencils and crayons leads to compensatory grasping patterns, as they are too long and too heavy for little hands to grasp and hold for long periods of time. A typical sized pencil in the hands of a child, is the equivalent of an adult trying to use a 12 inch pencil!
The type of pencil grip can also serve to support the child as they focus on the writing process, therefore not exhausting their thought and energy, trying to remember to grasp the pencil properly for the best function.Twist-N-Write Pencils: This tool features a rotating grip that can be adjusted to fit the individual’s hand size and writing style, providing a customized ergonomic experience.

Triangular Pencil Grips: These grips have a triangular shape, providing a natural grip and encouraging proper finger placement for better control and stability while writing. For those struggling to manipulate, use, position, and write with a pencil grip during written output, sometimes an alternative grip is the answer. This one is fairly self-explanatory. The fingers that are not on the pencil hold onto a small pom-pom, coin, or bead. This reminds the child to keep those fingers closed in their hand with the correct fingers on the pencil.
