My son had no interest in writing at all. Since getting these pencil grips he is so excited to write and scribble. It’s amazing the encouragement the designs and color gave him to want to do it FINALLY!
Young children move through a series of stages as they are learning to write. The ability to put your thoughts into sentences and paragraphs that others will be able to read and understand is problematic for many children with ADHD.
Children with ADHD may also be developmentally delayed in their fine-motor skills — the small muscle movements required in writing.
When the physical act of writing is challenging, it interferes with being able to “show what you know.” It’s not surprising, then, that children with Autism often hate to write, and resist doing so. When a child encounters such classroom defeat frequently, especially in the early years of schooling, it doesn’t take long for him to get discouraged with academic work, and to develop a sense of inferiority that undermines his attempts to learn.
Writing aids can actually be more than helpful–they can be fun! Plus, they build coordination–a skill that is useful for much more than writing.
Paced Transition is Key:
Stage 1 Grip: Has a ring on the back to guide the middle finger to the right position to leverage the grip. The structure that holds the thumb and index helps the transition to the next stage.
Stage 2 Grip: When ready, use this grip to set free the middle finger and keep reinforcing the index and thumb with more comfort and fun.
Pack contains 6 grips: 3 stage one + 3 stage two.

Why 2 Stages?
When Bright Autism's customers speak, we listen.
Over the years, customers have given us phenomenal feedback about writing grips. They told us how much it has helped their children, how it has been a game-changer since they used it and how their children built confidence after learning to write correctly.
They just had one request: they needed to guide their children at their own pace, without big changes.
We’re proud to announce: We now have what customers asked for. Our new development will create a stress-free and paced learning to grip so much fun!
The Stage 1 Grip is specially designed for kids who are learning to write or have grip problems. Guiding your kids by immobilizing the fingers is an easy and fun way to learn.
The Stage 2 Gripimproves handwriting, helps to give more control, and reduces hand fatigue that comes with writing the wrong way.
Kids adapt easily and find comfort with these pencil holders. They can learn at their own pace and will keep a positive habit even after the transition to a gripper free. Think of it like training wheels on a bicycle.
