As an OT, how many gazillions of The Pencil Grip have you provided to students, teachers, clients and parents?
Having worked as a school based OT for more than 30 years, I probably have distributed hundreds of The Pencil Grip to facilitate an appropriate grasp, decrease fatigue and comfort when writing or drawing. The design does not cure fine motor challenges but it has been one of my favorite pencil/crayon/ marker/utensil grips. The Pencil Grip folks have developed a stylus with their ergonomic grip !
The Pencil Grip’s Ergonomic Stylus (12.99) provides a comfortable grip that can be with the right or left hand on all types of tablets. I am looking forward to trialing this stylus !
