Students may find receiving assistance with handwriting activities in a small group setting beneficial to building a strong foundation with the skill and be more prepared and confident when that subject is introduced in their educational setting. Meeting other individuals experiencing similar challenges may help them emotionally allowing them to be more expressive with their family about their concerns; they learn they are not alone.


Handwriting Problems, Occupational Therapy Edmonton

Some handwriting programs initiate all of the lower case letters from the bottom line making it easier for students to remember where to start the handwritten letters. Some students may find handwriting easier to learn (i.e. compared to printing) and implement for written communication activities. Handwritten letters are generally more curved than printed letters and involve rotary movements of the fingers.
