Handwriting/Written Expression

Handwriting/Written Expression

Written expression is a complicated process that involves trunk muscle postural control, graded control of arm muscles, ideation, motor planning, aromaticity of letter formation, visual perception, spatial-relation awareness, ability to recall from variety of sensory/motor experiences, and body awareness/body scheme.  We work with clients who have varying needs and strengths making an effort to choose activities and topics that are meaningful to them.  Keeping families goals in mind, we progress our clients by acquiring pre-writing skills, developing proper grasp of a pencil, learning formation of letters, writing paragraphs, and teaching self- monitoring skills. Frequent, even daily, practice is encouraged at home.
