Handwriting Difficulties

Specialists on Hand - Monday, July 28, 2014

Specialists On Hand are pleased to offer a comprehensive Handwriting Program including evaluation and treatment for those experiencing difficulties with hand writing tasks. This includes children in kindergarten and pre-primary through to high school and even tertiary (university) students.

Research indicates that examiners assign lower marks to written work which is poorly handwritten but contains content of equal quality to work which is attractively and legibly handwritten.

Children with conditions that affect their hands may find it difficult to keep up with schoolwork and start falling behind and becoming frustrated.

Specialists on Hand are now offering paediatric assessment and intervention for children with conditions which affect speed and legibility of their written work.

Experienced therapists will conduct thorough assessment to pinpoint areas for intervention and may use strategies to increase handwriting speed and/or legibility, adaptive equipment, or alternatives such as keyboarding.

If you are a teacher and would like more information on hand writing difficulties please contact our Nedlands office on ph: 9389 8829.
