The Pencil Grasps and Grippers Online Course has been incredibly helpful to deepen my knowledge and understanding of each grip on the market, and their unique purpose.  Bunty clearly explains her thoughts behind each grip and when they might prove useful to support a specific handwriting grasp.  This course also supports Bunty’s other one – Assessment of Handwriting Function, and dives into the plethora of grasps and grips in more detail.  I have learnt a lot which I can apply in my practice in working with children as an Occupational Therapist.

Thank you so much Bunty – I have just finished watching, and I am so impressed!  It was so clearly explained.  I thought I knew a lot about pencil grip, but I learnt quite a few important pointers.  I really learnt a lot from you.
