Visual Motor, Eye Hand Coordination and Handwriting

The Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools and Early Intervention published research on 75 second graders who were evaluated using the Concise Assessment Scale for Children’s Handwriting, the Developmental Test of Visual Perception-2 and the manual dexterity section of the Movement Assessment Battery for Children. Results indicated that visual motor integration and eye hand coordination are predictive of the quality of a student’s handwriting.
