ARK's Weighted Pencil is a writing tool recommended for individuals with sensory integration issues and/or undeveloped fine motor control. The weight and textured surface of the pencil provide increased sensory input and proprioceptive feedback to the hand while writing. These sensations may increase focus, normalize writing speed, increase hand strength and dexterity, and/or decrease the grip force used to hold a pen/pencil.
