Is your child struggling with handwriting in the classroom?
Do they have difficulty writing as legibly as their peers?
Do they struggle to keep up with the writing speed expected at school?
Occupational therapy may be able to help. Many children who struggle with handwriting have underlying hand strength, coordination or endurance delays, and may also display difficulties with visual perception and sensory processing. Once these challenges are assessed and addressed, children display greater success with handwriting in the classroom. Additionally, if your child has a similar-aged family member or friend who also struggles with pre-writing and/or handwriting skills, treatment can be provided at a group rate. A child is never too old to improve pencil grasp or handwriting skills.
