Letter formation sheets inside these workbooks are a perfect way to teach an autistic child how to write. It allows for kids on the spectrum to experiment, follow the guide lines, while tuning in on their fine motor skills.

How To Teach Writing To Autistic Children

The first step into teaching a child how to write, regardless of autism is to engage their attention so they are able to focus better at the task at hand. If your child is sensory seeking, it’s a good idea to engage in some sensory play first to calm them down. A calm mind is much easier to focus.

Once your child is calm and better focused, OTs recommend you move into the pre-writing phase of just fun drawing activities using their favorite writing utensil. This could consist of crayons, chalk, markers, or pencils. If they like pencils, go for the fun colored ones and make the process super fun. Pull out your hand and start tracing it, have your child then trace your outline or trace their own hand or even foot. Have a pet in the home who can sit still? Have them join the fun too!

One your little one is primed they’re ready to be introduced to letter formation sheets in one of the tracing workbooks below. As with everything in life, writing is definitely an adventure and it all begins with the right focus and tools. The tracing exercises in the workbooks below will train your child’s muscles to be reflective of muscle memory, improve fine motor skills, and increase hand eye coordination. We recommend practicing as often as time permits to develop their communication skills and reinforce the learning process through simple tracing exercises.

Recommended Tools To Help Children With Autism Write Better

Some parents and therapists have noticed that some children with autism may have difficulties with writing. To avoid frustrations with a lack of fine motor control and sensory integration issues, some parents have noted that weighted pencils have helped tremendously in improving their child’s handwriting skills. A weighted accessory added to a writing utensil can effectively improve proprioception and allows for a child on the spectrum to better control the position of their writing instrument.
