I discovered these great pencils & pens to make writing easier for children called, “Twist N’ Write”.  My son who had writing difficulty, is doing beautifully with them, and I like them as well!

They are made for smaller hands and take the pressure off your joints while writing.  These pencils come in four colors, and I purchased mine on Amazon, but they are sold right from their site.

There are so many writing tools out there on the market, but this makes the most sense to me (as a former educator), & they were recommended by his classroom teacher and a Occupational therapist.

Go to http://www.penagain.com and watch the YouTube clip which is very informative.

Love them!
