Why does it really matter? A question I am constantly being asked as an Occupational Therapist by concerned parents for a good reason!
Pencil grip isn't just about being able to hold a pencil in the correct way for writing, it sets up posture, core strength and muscle tone. An incorrect pencil grip can lead to learning difficulties, pain and other issues.
Does your child becomes upset and will not touch objects such as sand or dirt, or do they become upset with tags on their clothing rubbing against their skin?
This often requires the parent or carer to avoid certain routines or activities or objects in order to manage the child distress over these sensory experiences.
