Darcy you got alot of great info before your meeting, I agree with everyone. Our son is in 2nd also but handwriting is not graded (if it was a change in his IEP would soon follow). He just started using a pencil grip a month or so ago, it took him awhile to get used to, but he is doing better and has less hand/finger cramps. Complains now when doing homework since we don't have any here.
How did the meeting go? Any change in his IEP?
