HANDWRITING QUESTIONS: MOTOR PLANNING


Motor planning is the ability

to come up with how to do a new activity;

to sequence the steps of a new activity;

to execute the steps of a new activity.

Writing each letter involves all of the steps of motor planning.  Help a child learn to watch other children first to determine how to do the new activity.  Help a child  “talk himself through the new activity”.  Be aware that the child who is last to become involved in a new activity especially P.E. may have motor planning issues and needs to watch before doing.  Practice a new activity with the child before he must interact with others.

Its very important to practice the correct formations of the letters using a multi sensory approach with children having motor planning issues.

See you next week!
