I spoke to kiddo's teacher last night and she is recommending that she be screened for occupational therapy. Apparently kiddo does not hold her pencil and crayon correctly (neither do I, but whatever) and she seems to fatigue easily when she writes. I just feel like I failed her, but honestly I never really thought about "proper" holding technique. Like I said I hold my pens wonky and I have perfectly legible handwriting. I don't want kiddo to feel like she's not performing well enough, teacher assured me that in all other ways she's doing great in class. I okayed the screening but asked if I could be in the area so that I could speak with the testers once the test was completed. Also if it doesn't go well I know kiddo is going to be a mess, she's pretty much obsessed with perfection which only makes me feel even worse about all this. Honestly I want what's best for my daughter, but I feel a little annoyed that they want to do this screening just because she doesn't hold her crayons in the standard way.
