Health Tip: Evaluating Your Child's Handwriting

(HealthDay News) -- A child who has trouble with handwriting may be at risk of developmental problems that could hinder the child's ability to learn, the American Occupational Therapy Association says.

An occupational therapist can evaluate the underlying components of a student's handwriting, including muscle strength, endurance, coordination and motor control, the association says.

A child's handwriting may help an occupational therapist:

  • Evaluate the child's posture and use of the arms, hands, head and eyes.
  • Analyze visual and perceptual skills that can influence a child's ability to form letters and shapes.
  • Suggest home activities that promote development of good handwriting skills.
