Try other mediums such as paint, dot markers, or drawing in sand with his finger. Sometimes a multi-sensory approach can trigger those motor skills and memorization. Good luck! :)

If your son can hold a pencil correctly then you mark his name out using dots and get him to join them together, or write his name and get him to draw over the tops of the letters or hold his hand gently to get the letter shapes and show him how to draw a letter. It is just a case of practise.
