If you don’t want to go to the expense of buying an Apple Pencil for using on an iPad or other tablet, there are lots of other quite inexpensive options for a stylus for using on the screen. Using a stylus is much better than using your finger and opens up many other possibilities. Writing on the screen with a stylus is much better for writing numbers and letters, leading to much more legible writing.

In this video, I show four different styluses that can be used with a tablet screen. All four are very inexpensive and can be easily picked up either online or in technology shops or even in your local pound stores.

I also show a stylus that is recommended for pupils with poor fine motor control or poor pencil grip which encourages the tripod grip.
