Handwriting and other fine motor tasks demand strength in the core body muscles to provide stability to the upper body and head so that the hands and fingers can engage with the eyes in the performance of precision tasks. An efficient analysis of handwriting development skills and the development of an effective remediation plan to address handwriting needs should begin with the assessment of the writer’s seating arrangements. Chair and desk sizes and heights are critical measurements that can provide the most basic and fundamental information about handwriting performance: How is the seating supporting or hindering handwriting success. In my book, Handwriting Development Assessment and Remediation: A Practice Model for Occupational Therapists, I discuss this topic in detail. In my post, “5 Reasons Why Handwriting Needs a Good Seat,” I share guidelines that can assist in the assessment of seating, as well as adaptations that can provide stability for your young writer.
