Product and Process Evaluation of Handwriting Difficulties
Handwriting is a complex human activity that entails an intricate blend of cognitive, kinesthetic, and perceptual-motor components. Children are expected to acquire a level of handwriting proficiencyExpand
Responses of preschool children with and without ADHD to sensory events in daily life.
The findings of the present study suggest that young children with ADHD may be at increased risk of deficits in various sensory processing abilities, over and above the core symptoms of ADHD. Expand
Somatosensory function in boys with ADHD and tactile defensiveness
Claims that TD is related to central processing of somatosensory information, but not to anomalous tactile perception, are supported, with the exception of Finger Identification. Expand
Somatosensory functioning in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
The results show that the ADHD children were less skilled on suprathreshold, but not on threshold tasks than were the controls, and some aspects of somatosensory processing by ADHD children are deficient. Expand
Vision, visual-information processing, and academic performance among seventh-grade schoolchildren: a more significant relationship than we thought?
The high occurrence of visual deficits among participants warrants consideration of vision deficits among schoolchildren with academic performance difficulties. Expand
Co-occurrence of developmental delays among preschool children with attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder.
It is suggested that preschool children with ADHD have multiple developmental deficits over and above the core symptoms of ADHD and emphasize the importance of evaluating the sensorimotor functioning of preschoolChildren with ADHD symptoms. Expand
Relationships among biomechanical ergonomic factors, handwriting product quality, handwriting efficiency, and computerized handwriting process measures in children with and without handwriting
This study investigated whether nonproficient handwriters could be distinguished by biomechanical ergonomic factors during handwriting, as well as by measures of handwriting efficiency, to provide insights that can assist in planning intervention. Expand
Development of the Little Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire for preschoolers and preliminary evidence of its psychometric properties in Israel.
Based on the preliminary psychometric evidence, it appears that the Little DCDQ meets many of the necessary standards for validity and reliability as a screening instrument, and shows promise as a useful clinical and research tool. Expand
Effectiveness of Sensorimotor and Task-Oriented Handwriting Intervention in Elementary School-Aged Students with Handwriting Difficulties
The effects of two handwriting intervention programs for students with handwriting difficulties were compared. Students in grades 2 to 4 were randomly assigned to a sensorimotor intervention (n =Expand
