Don't stress!







Using Screening
Tools(e.g., Screening Observations) with
many drawings, simple "check-off" format,
& organized with correct on left side of
page, incorrect on right side.  

Results that provide more than "scores"    
     but can
directly help you successfully          
     intervene!

You can
easily identify "major" & "minor"
handwriting errors,
& determine what to
do to fix them.

student handwriting deficits using the
Academic Questionnaire
Report academic impact to administrators

caseloads & grouping students of similar            
need.)
