How to Choose the Right Pencil Grip

A Pencil Grip improves handwriting, helps to give more control, and reduces hand fatigue that comes with writing the wrong way.

As a parent, your child’s independence is very important to you. Many children can be fussy when learning how to write, especially if they feel like they can’t hold their pencil the right way, or if they feel like they can’t learn from who are teaching them.

Children are increasingly finding it hard to hold pens and pencils caused by the excessive use of technology. Holding a pencil correctly requires strong finger muscle control to help produce legible writing and avoid discomfort.


A Pencil grip is a component of handwriting.
Most children naturally develop a pencil grip that is comfortable for them. In any kinder or school class, a variety of pencil grips will be seen. 

Here at BrightAutism, we provide several different types of pencil grips that will  allow your child to hold their pencil the right way—on their own terms:

  1. Two Fingers
  2. One Finger
  3. Double Thumb

Each of these three models offers unique features that work together to effectively guide your children to hold their pen or pencil.


This Two Fingers model can help your children to relieve pressure, at the same time lead them to write in the correct way. They have two holes that can fix the thumb and index finger, allowing your child to hold their pencil the right way preventing skin irritation and blisters.

Designed for kids who are learning to write or have difficult to hold pens and pencils. This training pencil helps to cultivate children’s interest in writing and let adults improve and correct their handwriting posture.

Recommended ages: 3 to 12 years old.



This One Finger model not only can prevent your child's middle finger from cocooning, but also correct the wrong writing posture, maintain good writing habits, and enhance self-confidence.

The different color star-shaped pattern design keep your child entertained and interesting whenever they are writing or painting.

Designed for preschools who are learning to write, for kids who have difficult to hold pens, for adults who need to correct and improve handwriting, for old with arthritis who are still interested in writing and drawing.


This Double thumb model can help your kids to relieve pressure, at the same time lead them to write in a correct way. 

These Pencil Holders can be used by kids who are learning to write or have difficult to hold pens, guiding your kids by immobilizing fingers on the designated proper position.

Let BrightAutism help you with your children needs. We offer the best in product quality and customer service. We look forward to helping you. 



  • two fingers model:
    So far so good for my daughter. She has low muscle tone and struggles with her writing. This is definitely keeping her fingers in the right spot.

  • DOUBLE-THUMB MODEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is an awesome tool for my daughter to help her hold a pencil! Her teacher loved it!

  • 2 fingers model…These are awesome for my preschooler. We just keep them on a set of 4 pencils or pens & those are set apart just for her to use when she wants to write or draw.

  • My 7-year-old son has Autism and has always had a hard time gripping his pencil correctly which has affected his handwriting. I was looking for something comfortable and easy to use and double thumb model is it! He loves to use them and uses them when he does his homework every night they are helping correct his grip each time we use them little by little without pain, discomfort, and tears! Love these and def recommend this!

  • I can recommend two fingers grips, these grips are amazing. I have students in my autism classroom using them to help them hold the pencil the correct way when writing.
