As a pediatric Occupational Therapist, I often receive questions from concerned parents and teachers about whether children are on track with their handwriting development.
Sometimes kids’ handwriting difficulties are due to the fact that they are not yet developmentally ready to begin handwriting instruction.
Or sometimes it’s because they don’t have a good gross motor foundation for handwriting.
Or they have poor fine motor skills.
Or they have challenges with sensory processing that impacts their ability to write efficiently.
Or they have difficulties with visual perception or visual-motor integration.
Or maybe they are a reluctant writer and just really don’t like to write.
If any of these situations sounds familiar to you, then I have good news for you!
