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 Perception Skills:
Visual Perception refers to the ability to recognize, recall and discriminate shapes, including the 26 letters of the alphabet, how to form letters and discriminate between similar letters (i.e. d and b and q and g). Ask yourself these questions: Does your child reverse his or her letters? Does your child identify letters incorrectly? If so...please contact the Handwriting Helper.
If your child has any of these issues, the Handwriting Helper can assist. Please contact Susanna Wolfe at (949) 831-4166 for an evaluation.
