Technical Description

The objective of this research study is to determine if children in grades 1-6 who are experiencing persistent handwriting difficulties demonstrate improvement in handwriting and/or visual motor integration after participating in an 8-week Handwriting Without Tears handwriting (HWT) program.

The effect of a HWT program will be measured in two ways. The first is by using the Test of Handwriting Skills - Revised (THSR), a standardized handwriting assessment for children aged 6 to 18. The second measurement used will be the Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration 6th edition (VMI).
