The objective of this project was to improve the writing ability of children, between the ages of 4-6 by encouraging proper grip techniques and practice through the medium of touch screen technology. The methods we used were, field testing children, interviewing and academic research of the professional literature on the occupational development of grips, emerging usages of touch screen devices in homes and school, and declining writing ability for children. The conclusions reached by the team are: fine motor development in children has been decreasing, children are using touch screen technologies at an increasing rate, and the styluses developed by the team will improve children handwriting writing development.
