Guidelines to keep in mind to correct bad handwriting

  • We must identify what is causing the bad handwriting.
  • We must work fine motor skills with exercises and varied activities.
  • We must adapt the work environment to motivate the boy or girl in question.
  • We must carry out activities suitable for the development of spatial coordination.
  • We must focus on the child improving his ability to understand and express language .
  • We must avoid that the child performs actions such as writing quickly or squeezing the pencil or pen too much when writing.
  • We must ensure that the child assiduously practices writing with the help of sheets with squares and / or lines, as well as traditional style calligraphy notebooks .
  • To all of the above, we must always add fun games and activities , such as those that we can find in reading and writing resources and materials, so that children with handwriting problems do not see in this re-education process a punishment or an excessive task tedious.

But above all it is important that we let the child know that he is suffering from this problem, that having bad handwriting is something that can be avoided and that in no way implies that he is a bad student or a different person from the rest.

Writing with bad handwriting is something that can even happen to adults, and the way to correct it is to understand each person’s personal situation and face it in search of the best solution.
