Working With Reluctant Writers – week 3

Fine Motor Skills Problems in your reluctant writer

My oldest son has always battled low muscle tone.  His low muscle tone was first pointed out to us during his initial Early Intervention evaluations, way back in the day.  He began seeing a feeding speech therapist, and that helped us loads there.  His fine motor skills as they related to writing, however, made slower progress as we would have liked to have seen.  Finding workarounds is important for us when his hands are becoming exhausted, but we still need to get some learning in.  Below are some tips to help you with your homeschool writing journey.
