Kids - Handwriting
Poor fine motor skills impact on a child’s ability to do a range of occupations including dressing, using cutlery, playing and writing. We set goals which focus on increasing independence in these occupations.
How can you benefit from this service?
Handwriting without tears is a multi-sensory approach to teaching handwriting. Our therapists have attended training since 2016 and have been using the handwriting curriculum ever since. We have found the curriculum is adaptable to most children with a variety of needs.
Our therapists assess fine motor skills, pencil grip, visual perceptions skills and sensory needs which may be affecting the quality and speed of handwriting. We also use the detailed assessment of speed of handwriting (DASH) which is a standardised assessment.
