Shoulder stability is very important for correct and efficient handwriting and keyboarding.
A child with shoulder instability may:
- Hunch their shoulders, creating tension.
- Hold their arms close to the body when writing.
- Hold pencils too tight, limiting the fine movements of the hand.
This variation on bow pose is one exercise you can do to strengthen shoulder stability. We do fun exercises like this and more in our Handwriting, Keyboarding & Beyond course that starts September 15.
