I understand your worry. Here are a few handy tips which may be of help. 1. Some times it may happen so that a child's fine motor skills (read as finger movement in context here) need honing. You could help your child in strengthening his hand muscles and finger grip by focusing on fine motor development exercises. It would take time, but you would start noticing a difference after a few weeks. Even household chores like poring water in to a glass, arranging books, cleaning and wiping plates. 2. Boost Pincer grip for your child, that is through the use of tongues and tweezers. 3.Create a fun story book or my daily story kind of a diary for your child and encourage him to write anything he would like there every day and then share with you before dinner, like a story of the most interesting things in the day for him. 4. Encourage your child to write beyond academics for fun and play as well. Also, read this blog - Do let me know how does it go when you try these. 5.To make him interested in writing, place any of these : a board/ chart/colour paper/ colour pens. 8. Sit beside him and you do some writing task so that he will copy your behaviour. Try these concentration techniques: 1. Ask him to circle the letter 'e' from a passage. 2. If he likes to listen to music, play an instrumental piece and ask him to listen the non dominant instrument. 3. Doing a puzzle/ scrabble/ crossword. 4. Colouring/painting 5. Spotting differences in pictures.
