Two studies were carried out in order to better understand the role of perceptual and visuo-motor skills in handwriting.

The results revealed that improvements of VH training on letter recognition and handwriting quality were higher than improvements after V training. We suppose that VH training was more efficient because it improved both perceptual and visuo-motor… CONTINUE READING
