Invented by occupational therapist Tina M. Butterfield, MSOT, OTR/L and developed by ARK Therapeutic, the Butter Grip is specially designed to promote proper finger positioning during writing tasks. A proper grip not only encourages fine motor development, but it also improves handwriting legibility. The round shape of this occupational therapy pencil grip serves as a tactile cue for the fingers to grasp around. The fingers "hug" the grip, and the fingertips rest just below the grip on the pencil. In this position, the Butter Grip opens up the web space, provides support to the finger muscles, and can help decrease hyperextension.
Perfect for both left and right-handed individuals for writing and drawing activities, the Butter Grip can be used with standard pencils, most crayons, most pens, as well as ARK's Tran-Quill® Pen, Pencil, and Crayon. At a diameter of 1 inch, this round pencil grip is recommended for children and young adults.
