cagirlintexas Posted August 18, 2012 Share Posted August 18, 2012 I didn't want to take over someone else's thread so I am posting my own. When do I worry? My son is 5 1/2. We did Handwriting without tears this last year. Mostly just uppercase letters with a little bit of numbers. If you give him anything but a tiny piece of crayon or chalk he doesn't do anything close to a tripod grip. Kinda of holds it with the tips of all 5 fingers. With the tiny pieces of chalk and crayons he does a better grib. His handwriting is still really bad though after a year of practice and even worse after taking time off this summer. I know he is a boy and these things take time. So my question is. Should I do something more intensive or just keep going the way we are going. Other then the writing thing I see no other delay in his fine motor skills. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
