      Awesome idea for fine motor difficulty. Pencil Grip Correction with a Pom Pom. annual editions pg 214 explains that when students have pincer control they are prepared to grasp pencils and markers. When they do not have their pincer control fully developed, accommodations can be made, including this one.

      Intro for kids holding pencils - this really works. I get the kids to hold a marble instead as it can't be squashed in their hands; which means they really have to hold the pencil using the correct grip.
