Working on Writing
Joe has been working on writing. It has been a long process. He has a few obstacles to overcome including low muscle tone in his hands, small fingers, and very short thumbs. All of this makes it difficult for Joe to grasp a writing implement and control it when he writes. He has been doing a great job with reading and early spelling but writing continues to be a challenge. I was proud when Joe insisted on writing the names of his classmates on the Halloween that bags that he made this weekend. We used the list of names sent home by his teacher and he wrote the names by himself.
