Handwriting & Writing Aids


Handwriting & Writing Aids

Handwriting is often a struggle for children with an autism spectrum disorder. Children with autism may lack fine motor skills such as holding a pen or pencil, which then affects their handwriting.
Handwriting workbooks, weighted holders and jumbo grip pencils provide writing lessons and tools that are geared to help these children become more successful with writing tasks. Perfect for the student who is just learning to hold a pencil, print or making the transition from one grade level to the next.
