21TRA039 The Underlying Skills Necessary for Handwriting




Handwriting is a very complex process and there are tons of reasons why a child may be struggling. Wondering why a child can't remember how to form their letters? Or why they are slumped on the desk? Can't keep the letters on the line? As Occupational Therapists, we are trained to evaluate the underlying components that support a student's handwriting such as muscle tone, strength, endurance, coordination, and motor control. This webinar will explore the progression of handwriting, the importance of developing underlying skills and ways of structuring handwriting lessons to support all your students.
