Description

The Start Right Pencil Grip was designed by an occupational therapist to correct the grips she was seeing in her therapy room.  This is the grip for the hyperextended thumb, or the thumb that assumes a position in the shape of a banana.  It is specifically designed to encourage flexion of the thumb, and is an appealing alternative in our assortment of grips to assist our children.

In addition to the hyperextended or straightened thumb and promoting opposition, the Start Right grip is also a lovely option for correction of the thumb wrap and thumb tuck.

This grip doesn’t have indentations, flaps or cups to hold and support the fingers.  The disc at the top is merely positional, correcting the position of the hyperextended thumb.  This means that your child cannot use the external structure of the grip to do the work their muscles should be doing.  They have to actively hold onto the stem of the grip, just as they will need to actively hold onto their pencil when they ultimately leave the grip behind.

Start Right is suitable for both our lefties and right handed children with no special modifications for achieving the correct grasp.

The Start Right Pencil Grip fits on a regular Grade 1 pencil.  While I am the master of getting any pencil grip onto a retractable was crayon, this one has brought me to my knees!  It fits the regular pencil and not the twisty crayon!

With a lovely assortment of bright colours from red, to blue, to green and even a bright pink one, they are made of a comfortable material which is latex free.
