The CLAW is a tool that can be used to teach kids the tripod grasp, also known as, the pencil grip. This grip is necessary for everyday skills like properly holding pens, pencils and other writing utensils. The CLAW design consists of cups that determine finger position so that kids have a guide for perfect practice. The cups allow kids to properly position their fingers in the tripod grasp while the pencil, pen or other writing utensil is fitted into the sling in the middle of the CLAW to hold it all in place. The CLAW comes in 3 sizes to fit a variety of finger sizes.
