After a brain injury, many survivors experience a decline in handwriting skills.  This may be due to an inability to use a dominant hand or a newly acquired general deficit in motor coordination.  However, with practice handwriting can be improved.

One of the best resources to practice handwriting is the ESL Writing Wizard.  This webpage allows you to create free custom tracing pages.  It lets you determine the wording, layout, size and script for your own tracing pages.  I generally recommend that the entirety of the Line Pattern section be set to “dot, dot” to maximize the number of words to be traced.

Remember, practicing skills is vital to rebuilding them!
