Handwriting struggles can be some of the most challenging obstacles children and young adults with autism face as they’re growing up.
For most kids, learning handwriting can be dull and repetitive, but it's a task mastered midway through elementary school.
For many children with autism, though -- even those with higher IQs than most -- handwriting becomes an arduous chore, because the very act of writing letters takes them so long to do.
As difficult as it can be for children on the Spectrum, there are ways to improve handwriting skills for those with autism.
Focusing on improving fine motor skills can help boost handwriting performance of a child with autism.
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.

My grandchildren started holding pencils, crayons at odd angles. Awkward angles. One is left handed, other is right handed. These grips worked wonders almost immediately. On their next weekly visit to me they asked to use again to make sure they were holding them correctly! And they were.
I'd definitely recommend!!These are my favorite so far!! I homeschool and it's always a struggle to properly teach how to hold a pencil and frustrating for our kids (ages 4-6) but I've been using these and it helped wonderfully!
These have been a tremendous help with teaching my 4 year old to write! He loves the bright colors.
My son used these in kindergarten. He is now in 1st grade and doesn't need them anymore. Highly suggest these! He couldn't hold a pencil correctly for the life of him, prior to these.
I love the grips. My son uses these. I really like this one. Yes they really work.
