Thanks starfish, how do I do this, do I make an appointment with our gp first?

It might be worth seeing an OT - they may be able to advise about how he grips the pen or be able to come up with aids to help

Hi, I think he has hypermobility, I'm goin to ask his paed next time I see her.
He is 10 and recently told me that his fingers 'get stuck' when he writes and what he does is stick rubbers between his 2nd/3rd, 3rd/4th and 4th/5th fingers. I'm surprised nothing has been mentioned at school.
Is there anything I can buy for him or do for him that will help him?
