handwriting services


This is a specialized service to assess children on their fine motor skills and writing abilities at school. Great for the preschool/Pre-K/Kindergarten aged child. Parents appreciate the insight into their child’s skills and readiness for handwriting.  School provides service and location while parents sign up and make payment. Child screenings are 15 minutes.  Each child will receive a written summary of their skills.  This screening can also take place at clinic during office hours by appointment. $75 fee.


For children age 6 years and up, this includes a 45-minute evaluation session that covers parent interview, review of school papers/written assignments, assessment of pencil grip, writing posture and paper placement, and administration of The Print Tool, HWT’s formal printing assessment covering the eight components of handwriting: memory, orientation, placement, size, start, sequence, control, spacing. Also included is a written Evaluation Report.  $150 fee.

A handwriting group is different than the traditional one-to-one therapy experience. Handwriting groups are offered to provide small group instruction to help refine prewriting and writing skills. The Handwriting Without Tears program and kinesthetic learning will be used to promote the developmental learning process. Emphasis will not only be placed on pencil and paper but will include constructing letters with wooden pieces, identifying letters with vision occluded, and forming letters in different textures. Each child will learn important habits such as “top to bottom” and “left to right” which will assist in reading and writing.  All classes are instructed by a pediatric occupational therapist with extensive training in handwriting curriculums.

All fees below are for private lessons and include all student materials, including workbook, additional supplies, and parent instruction.
