Handwriting Poor handwriting is often due to poor learning and inadequate teaching but it can also be due to a difficulty with fine muscle control and poor hand-eye co-ordination. Handwriting should be taught early in a child’s school career. Children with handwriting difficulties need intensive practice and clear instruction as poor handwriting restricts development. Many handwriting difficulties are due to poor sitting posture, inappropriate pencil grip and paper placement, or an inadequate teaching of letter formation.
