Parents and teachers are worried: Schreibmotorik Institut article in the journal “Ergotherapie und Rehabilitation”
The article written by Institute Director Dr. Marianela Diaz Meyer, scientific advisor Dr. Christian Marquardt and occupational therapist Anne Klimen is the first in a series of articles devoted to the role of writing motor skills in the process of learning to write. The article begins by focusing on presenting the extent and the causes of emerging handwriting problems.
Many children, including the eight-year-old Lotta, have considerable problems learning to write. If occupational therapists, teachers and parents are aware of the extent and the causes of emerging writing problems, lasting solutions can also be developed for therapy.
