Name: Training to Assist with Writing​​ 

SKU: ADLSWGOT

Solution Plan:​​ 

Handwriting is a functional skill and is essential to many areas of life, such as academic progression, communication between friends or family, or generating a list. There are multiple facets of handwriting that contribute to the creation of a word or sentence, fine motor coordination or motor planning, strength, cognition, visual motor integration, and sensory processing.

  • To help regain control of hands and fingers, place coins on a table away from the individual and have them pick up the coins one at a time.​​ 

  • In order to regain gripping ability, have the individual squeeze a stress ball in their​​ writing hand.

  • To aid in increasing finger movement, place a rubber band around the fingers of the weak hand, with the fingers close together, then have them spread out their fingers as far as possible and close them again.

  • Practice picking up a pen and holding it while “air writing”​​ 

  • When ready to write start with having the focus on writing their name or short words accurately first on lined paper with dots.​​ 

A specially designed pen, one with an attached base that helps to keep the hand steady, offering​​ balance, guidance, and stabilization such as a weighted pen with a grip is an excellent tool to help aid in the relearning handwriting stage.​​
