Ensuring your Child is “Fit for Handwriting”

Assessing Your Child’s Strength for Handwriting

To ensure your child has the strength to write comfortably and correctly it is necessary to assess their four key physical strengths.

In this part of the site we explain what the four key strengths are, how they effect your child’s physical abilities, and provide three exercises for each area so that you can test your child. An Assessment Sheet can be printed off to record their ability and help you identify key areas for improvement.
