Great tip for helping students to develop a proper pencil grip (or correct an improper one)- My babies need this!
Assisting child to hold pencil the "correct" way
This simple tip can help students correct awkward pencil grips! Give child a cotton ball or small ball to hold with their middle, ring, and pinky fingers. Then those fingers have a job and are less likely to creep up the pencil. Once those 3 fingers are holding the ball, the pointer and thumb can take control of the pencil. Hint: I actually think the cotton ball works better, but the 'fun' balls are enticing and kids want to use them - keeping a few of both on hand is probably a good idea.

Didn't read the article yet, but liked that the child appears to be using a "Wiki-Stix" or "Bendaroo" as a grip on the crayon. Also possible to use a rubber band.
A lot of good ideas
Use 'wiki stick' wrapped around crayon as a gripper for child learning & developing small motor skills
