Handwriting Therapy, or Graphotherapy
Handwriting Therapy for the most part uses regular handwriting practices. However, many stroke or neurological impairments create tremors in the hand/arm movements that make handwriting difficult or frustrating for some patients. For these, the Fluid Movement exercises in graphotherapy help. Before using the practices in the diagram below, please read up on the why and how to find the movements that will best accommodate your client for the best results. The works of Jeannette Farmer, Sheila Lowe, and others offer excellent foundations, theory in practice and guidance.
