Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most common neurobehavioral condition of childhood. Consequences are multifaceted and include activity limitations in daily-living skills, academic challenges, diminished socialization skills, and motor difficulties. Poor handwriting performance is an example of an affected life skill that has been anecdotally observed by educators and clinicians for this population and can negatively impact academic performance and self-esteem. To guide… 
Handwriting performance and underlying factors in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
TLDR
The ADHD group scored significantly lower on tasks demanding upper limb and eye-hand coordination and visual-motor integration compared with controls and motor skill was negatively correlated with writing time, in- air time, and in-air trajectory.
Handwriting difficulties in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
TLDR
Examining the handwriting performance in a simple condition but also under (verbal or spatial) working memory (WM) load in 16 fourth- and fifth-grade children with symptoms of ADHD and 16 matched control children showed that the groups speed differed significantly only in the verbal WM loading condition.
A quantitative comparison of handwriting in children with high-functioning autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
Children with high-functioning autism (HFA) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often experience significant handwriting difficulties, which can hamper their academic progress and
Handwriting capacity in children newly diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
TLDR
Poor handwriting legibility and slow writing speed were common in children newly diagnosed with ADHD and were associated with motor abilities, and future studies are needed to determine whether interventions can improve handwriting performance and related motor functioning.
Handwriting in Children With ADHD
TLDR
It was concluded that handwriting might be impaired in children with ADHD in a manner dependent on symptom severity, which may reflect reports of underlying motor impairment in ADHD.
Written composition performance of students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
ABSTRACT Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is frequently associated with learning disabilities. The present study examined the written composition of children with ADHD, which depends
The incidence of dysgraphia in Arabic language in children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a brain disorder marked by an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development.
Persistent Handwriting Difficulties in Children With ADHD After Treatment With Stimulant Medication
TLDR
Handwriting difficulties are common in children with ADHD, and medication alone is not sufficient to resolve these challenges, and changes in handwriting legibility was best determined by improvements in visual-motor integration skills.
Functional handwriting performance in school-age children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders.
TLDR
Results provide evidence of functional handwriting challenges for children with FASD and suggest diminished visual-motor skills and increased difficulty as task complexity increases.
Motor skills in Czech children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and their neurotypical counterparts.
TLDR
Compared to previous findings, the complexity underlying upper limb tasks solidified the divide in performance between children with ADHD and their neurotypical counterparts and impairments in lower limb motor skill were also observed.

TLDR
This study lends support to the hypothesis that ADHD-CT children without learning disabilities exhibit deficits on tasks requiring visuomotor perception.
Handwriting and attention in children and adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
Both children and adults with ADHD could perform age-appropriate and automated handwriting movements and children with ADHD on medication gave more attention to the writing process, possibly hampering fluent handwriting movements.
Handwriting Deficits in Children With Minimal Brain Dysfunction
TLDR
It is believed that methylphenidate has a direct positive effect on visual-perceptual-motor deficits often found in children with hyperactivity and learning disabilities.
Fine motor skills and effects of methylphenidate in children with attention‐deficit—hyperactivity disorder and developmental coordination disorder
TLDR
Investigating fine motor skills of children with both attention‐deficit–hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and developmental coordination disorder (DCD) and those of a control group found that children with ADHD–DCD performed more poorly on the manual dexterity subtests, had poorer quality of handwriting, and drew more rapidly, more fluently, but less accurately than controls on the graphomotor task.

The motor skills of 38 children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) were assessed. The majority of children had gross and fine motor skills within the normal range, with age
Deficits in motor control processes involved in production of graphic movements of children with attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
No evidence was found for a deficit in motor planning, but parameter setting appeared to be deficient as the ADHD group made less accurate strokes when accuracy demands increased.
Motor coordination and kinaesthesis in boys with attention deficit–hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The severity of the children's inattentive symptomatology was found to be a significant predictor of motor coordination difficulties and the type and degree of movement difficulty differed between subtypes.
The Effect of Conscious Control on Handwriting in Children With Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
The results indicate that automated handwriting movements are independent from visual feedback, and suggest that both visual and mental control of handwriting movements affect the automation of handwriting movement.

TLDR
This longitudinal case study focuses on handwriting samples of a female diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder from 12 years of age to 21 years ofAge, when the drug was discontinued.
