Handwriting is one of the most complex skills we learn and teach. It requires not only motor control but also sophisticated sensory, perceptual, praxis and cognitive functions, and the integration of these functions. When we consider the complex nature of this skill, it comes as little surprise that many children experience difficulty in mastering it.
