Handwriting is a critical functional skill that impacts academic participation and progress. OT practitioners address components of grasp in their handwriting intervention as it is commonly assumed that grasp affects legibility, fluency, and endurance. This study used scoping review methodology to explore the relationship between grasp and handwriting performance. Findings suggest a lack of consensus regarding this relationship and a need for additional research.
