Teachers have been instructing children for over 120 years the "correct" pencil grip. BUT many children with dysgraphia, learning disabilities and even elderly people with arthritis find it difficult to hold a pencil the conventional way. Even stroke victims find holding a writing utensil difficult.

A couple of years ago, I started to get arthritis in my hands. I found that even writing a check was difficult. Then one day, I just started holding my pen differently and I didn't have anymore cramping in my hand.

WATCH THIS VIDEO to see the method that I now use. I have been using it with many of my students, and they really like the unincumbered feel. I hope you do too. (This video will start playing immediately after downloading.
