My child doesn’t hold their pencil properly, when do I need professional help?

(3:16 mins) Although children today are developing their touch typing skills as quickly as their handwriting skills it is still a valuable skill to continue to develop. An occupational therapist can review your child’s handwriting grasp if you or your child’s educator has concerns. Concerns may arise due to pain in the fingers or hand while writing, poor legibility of letters, and slow handwriting speed.
