The overall aim of this three-day workshop is to help paediatric Occupational Therapists to acquire up-to-date knowledge and skills in order to fulfil the changing role of Occupational Therapy in the evaluation and treatment of children with handwriting difficulties.

Collaborative strategies for improving children’s handwriting in the educational settings will be discussed throughout the workshop.

Course Aims
  • Describe the function and development of handwriting skills.
  • Outline a framework for the evaluation and treatment of handwriting difficulties.
  • Identify underlying sensorimotor components (i.e. sensory processing functions, perceptual functions, postural-motor control and praxis) which contribute to the functional performance of manual handwriting skills (i.e. biomechanical and ergonomic factors, and quality of writing).
  • Apply different assessment procedures in evaluating a child's handwriting performance and relating it to the National Curriculum.
  • Outline a general framework for a successful handwriting intervention programme through direct therapy, monitoring and/or consultation modes of service delivery.
