Handwriting Issue

Better Handwriting

The strength of the child’s fore-arms, the way the hand grips the pencil, and the ability to control the tightness and weight of the pencil while writing on paper influences a child’s handwriting.

Factors Influencing Handwriting

Fine-Motor Skills

The strength of the child’s fore-arms, the way the hand grips the pencil, and the ability to control the tightness and weight of the pencil while writing on paper influences a child’s handwriting.

Gross-Motor Skills

Gross motor skills include a child’s ability to hold a good, steady posture while writing. Power comes from the base of the chair, through their stomach, back, shoulder and arms to hold the hand steady while writing. If this skill is weak they may get tired quickly or shift their posture often. This leads to inconsistent handwriting and inability to focus their full energy on writing.

Vision Processing And Ocular Control

Eye muscles must hold the eye-balls steady while the brain has to process what the eyes see and transfer this information to the fingertips to control the pencil movement. Vision processing must be developed at the same time as fine-motor function, because the eyes tell the hand where to move the pencil-tip.

Handwriting is an important developmental skill, and your handwriting says a lot about you.
