Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The requirements for handwriting continue to increase for children entering kindergarten. There is a general lack of consensus on a quantitative measure of handwriting, specifically in the preschool age group. Just Write! is a tool written by the researchers to measure functional handwriting and is showing promising results in the initial standardization phase. Participants will gain an understanding of the need for this tool as well as the current actions being taken to standardize the tool.
