Do you have questions about your child’s pencil grip?
Are you wondering if your child is holding the pencil correctly?
Do you want to know how your toddler should be holding the pencil?
In this printable, accessible download, you will find answers to these questions:
Some of my most popular pages on my website are the ones dealing with pencil grasp and the development of a “good” pencil grasp. Although I have a free printable on my site that deals with pencil grasp development, a lot of people are looking to have more information at their finger tips without having to wade all over my site!
This e-book aims to help teachers in particular, by giving photographed examples of different pencil grips which are functional, and should be encouraged.
Many people think that the dynamic tripod grip is the only functional way to hold the pencil, but in reality, there are some variations on the tripod grip that can also be functional – I show these in my e-book.
I also provide photographs of dysfunctional pencil grasps, with some feedback on what could possibly be causing the poor grip.
This download is intended to be an information resource, and as such, it does not contain specific activities to rectify poor grips. I do recommend an occupational therapy assessment if you are at all concerned about a child’s poor grip.
However, the e-book does give an general guidelines for parents and teachers in order to encourage the development of a good grip, and you can browse my site (or purchase my other fine motor e-books) to get a wealth of fine motor activities at your fingertips.

If you are at all concerned about the way your child holds a pencil, please do consider an occupational therapy evaluation to see what is contributing to the issue.
However, if you are wanting to give your child the best possible foundations for developing a good, functional grip on the pencil, then consider my accessible, affordable fine motor resources!
