I exactly remember that day when Robin and I used to work in the same company some two years back . Robin was in profound grief when he got to know that his child – Addie was born with Autism. His tensions mounted when Addie started growing and showed signs of autism. What worried him more was Addie’s poor handwriting skills since he was very unable to hold spoons, pencil, and acquired a bad handwriting over a period of time. Robin happened to be a sincere professional in the company and my best buddy. Two of us used to share the experiences with one another in our lives. On a fine day Robin invited me to Addie’s third birthday, I was excited enough to be a part of the celebration of his dear baby.
I got the amazing birthday present for Addie- Writing CLAW which I had been thinking to give him from quite some time. I hoped that he’d certainly love to get that. I was welcomed in a most loving fashion there at Robin’s house by his beautiful spouse. After the grandeur dinner I gifted the Addie his present in a most surprising fashion. Whoa! Bringing a smile on a little baby face is immense pleasure.
After the dinner session, we talked aimlessly and I taught Addie the usage of writing CLAW. Nothing other than this gift
could have been able to develop his handwriting skills. It helped him to develop the motor muscles in the fingers and
regained the confidence in learning.
