See those red cups over Isaac's fingers? All 3 cups are connected and it's called "The Claw" and it's the best thing in the world for handwriting. I found these while going though a magazine for Autism. They come in small, medium and large. The smaller size fits Evan Grace and Isaac gets the medium one and Mackenzie, God love her heart, takes the large size. Her handwriting is atrocious and she's the real reason I picked up the claw for all of the kids.
When Kenzie uses it correctly and doesn't rush through her work I can tell a world of difference in her handwriting. I've got Isaac and Evan Grace using one as well to reinforce the correct way to hold their pencil. I love this little thing.
You can order them here for $1.85 each. http://www.nationalautismresources.com/
