Handwriting Assessment (SASC Authorised)
Writing and transcription skills (handwriting and keyboarding) are critical throughout education and in employment. However, these are complex skills and students with cognitive, attention, language or motor coordination difficulties may struggle to become proficient in this area. This can have a negative impact on classroom learning, examination performance and self-esteem. The use of robust assessment tools will aid in the identification of and support for individuals with writing and handwriting difficulties. This presentation will introduce practical ways to assess the speed and legibility of handwriting and to evaluate written composition skills.
