Working On Handwriting

Thumper has a lot of work to do on his handwriting.  His fine motor skills overall are on the weak side, and his hand grip is very loose for a lot of things.

His school OT pointed me to an app that he liked using at school, Writing Wizard for Kids.  So we bought it and installed it on our iPad.

Now, Thumper isn’t always good about using the stylus to write with (sometimes he just straight up cheats and uses his right thumb, which is weird for a lefty), and you can see in the picture that his grip is a loose “tri” hold – not the ideal writing grip.  We have some work to do.

We just have to get him to focus on writing with the app, instead of playing with it….
