Make writing fun with the C.L.A.W for special needs kids
Handwriting can be an exhausting exercise for children with special needs. It involves combining of several fine motor skills to communicate. Kids with special needs often lack fine motor skillsand find it difficult to write legibly. It may lead to low self-esteem and frustration among kids and parents alike.
Even though special needs kids may face difficulties in writing, there are lots of ways to improve on these skills. You can use modeling clay to help build strength and practice manipulation by rolling, twisting and flattening clay in their hands. Peg boards, safety scissors and lacing beads also offer a fun and creative way of practicing fine motor skills.
Children with special needs struggle with the right amount of sensory feedback and stimulation. They have problems understanding how much pressure to use while gripping a pencil. Items that provide tactile and pressure-related guidance to children help stabilize and strengthen their hold, and improve their handwriting. They help train the hand to apply the right amount of pinch and push needed to write, and also develop their muscle memory.
The Writing C.L.A.W is one such writing aid that helps teach children how to hold their pencil correctly.
