Handwriting Problems

Sometimes parents are suddenly aghast at their children’s writing!  Why?
Do they complain of their hands hurting or any such thing?  They may have weak hands!  Look at the exercise  to increase their strength.  A quick google search on “hand strength”, finger strength” and a look at things on http://www.pfot.com about this (see sidebar) may help.  Just a few minutes a day.
If coordination is the issue, the same as above.
Every OT we have ever worked with recommends Hand Writing Without Tears.  I avoided it for awhile.  But it is a great program.
If placement is an issue, my friend developed Bright Lines paper
