Handwriting Assessments

Handwriting skills are crucial for a student's academic success. Occupational therapists can assess an array of skills that impact handwriting such as hand/wrist/finger mobility, posture, pencil grasp pattern, letter formation, letter legibility, letter sizing, word spacing, uppercase/lowercase letter usage, letter placements, developmental reflexes, and visual-motor/visual perceptual skills.

This list is by no means exclusive of common assessments that evaluate handwriting skills. Many occupational therapists utilize clinical observation to evaluate a student's handwriting.
