Handwriting is a very complex skill with many components including: visual motor skills, visual perception skills, fine motor skills, trunk control, shoulder stability and behavioral-emotional components. If one of these skills is compromised then handwriting often suffers.
Visual Motor Skills:
Visual Motor Skills refers to ability to use vision to direct motor output. Visual Motor Skills are required to catch, kick or hit a ball, use the computer and copy letters. Ask yourself these questions: Does your child have difficulty copying letters from the chalkboard or from another piece of paper? Does your child have difficulty with dot to dots?
