Abstract

Date Presented 4/21/2018

Fine motor skills impact children’s handwriting and school performance. This study found that programs with the best outcomes were structured, intensive, repetitive, and designed or implemented by an occupational therapist. These findings can help shape classroom or community-based writing programs.
