This document is an explanation of strengthening for handwriting skills and functional strengthening tasks. This is an easy set of ideas to perform at home.

Have you ever heard your child say that their hand hurts? Maybe you have observed your child shake or stretch their hand while writing, or have seen your child’s writing become bigger or sloppier, the longer they write. Your child may have low hand and upper extremity strength that is effecting their handwriting.

There are many muscle groups that go into handwriting. Arm muscles are connected - hand strength relies upon shoulder strength and which then relies upon core strength. Students need adequate core strength or stability to write (i.e.: proper desk posture). Then children need good upper extremity (shoulder) strength that supports hand strength. Luckily, children can work on all of these muscle groups without writing!

DISCLAIMER: This is intended for occupational therapists, teachers, parents, students and other team members to consult on strengthening. This is not intended to replace therapy. Please speak with your physician or OT if you have questions.
