Forty two 5 year-old children were assigned an intervention involving either Telemaque (experimental training;(More)
The aim of this paper is to present a new visuo-haptic interface for remediation of dysgraphic children. This interface allows teaching the children to reproduce a letter according to a standard not only static (i.e. its correct shape) but also dynamic (i.e. the rules of motor production). A new specific handwriting static and dynamic font was built. Using(More)
Two studies were carried out in order to better understand the role of perceptual and visuo-motor skills in handwriting. Two training programs, visual-haptic (VH) and visual (V), were compared which differed in the way children explored the letters. The results revealed that improvements of VH training on letter recognition and handwriting quality were(More)
