Handwriting difficulties can have significant impact on the academic performance of high school students, contributing to illegible handwriting and impaired handwriting speed. This is detrimental to the student in both classroom and exam situations. Students with handwriting difficulties often have difficulty completing class and exam work in the set time frame. Students with illegible handwriting frequently miss out on valuable marks due to difficulty deciphering what the student has written. Our therapists are experienced in assessing and treating high school students with handwriting difficulties, assisting them to improve their skills and written output. We can also assist adolescents who may be experiencing joint pain (e.g. knees, hips, back) and those with postural or gait concerns.
