Pencil Grasp Development

During the early developmental years there is a wide range in what a typical pencil grasp should look like. The picture examples used here are of preschool children at work. Each student was between three and a half and four and a half years old when I those pictures were taken (all on the same day). Even within a group of same aged children, there is still a very wide range of abilities within pencil grasp development.
