Video to teach a student how to hold a pencil with a correct pencil grasp. This video demonstrates the TIP grip and shows how to set up a TIP grip for correct grasp. However, it shows correct grasp no matter whether a grip or no grip is used on a pencil. It is a training video for teachers and therapists.
This video can be paired with the FREE download on The Fine Motor Store entitled FREE Pencil Warmups to Teach How to Hold a Pencil.
While this file is a training video, the Free Pencil Warmups are ACTIVITY FILES and samples of types of fine motor files in The Fine Motor Store. It is well worth your time to download the FREE PENCIL POWER WARMUPS FILE - it is filled with activities that you can use immediately to teach grasp. It also can be shared with others for training. You could have everyone download the Pencil Power Warm-ups and view this video on teaching grasp - and have a short mini inservice for teachers or send the links to parents! The Fine Motor Store has over 200 files/downloads for products for fine motor skills, handwriting and writing. All products were designed by Jan McCleskey, MA, OTR, an occupational therapist that founded The Handwriting Clinic in Richardson, Texas, as well as First Strokes Handwriting Programs.
The featured download in The Fine Motor Store is another FREE training document for teaching grasp - it is in narrative form and discusses different grasps on a pencil. Here is the link. Developing a Fine Motor Program for Children - Article by Jan McCleskey, MA, OTR
