Are pencil grips ok or not?
(OT Mom added this pic of a child using a pencil grip)
I recently spent six hours at a symposium on ADHD and dyslexia - the lecturer mentioned she 'uses pencil grips' for all their children with pencil grasp problems. She did add their writing got worse before it got better.
One of my (adult) students who was an OT told me she recommended pencil grippers, but specified I should offer a variety - because she felt a child accommodated to a particular gripper then went right back to an inappropriate three-prong
grasp with a pencil after a gripper was removed.
So, is there just disagreement in the field regarding this question?
