Motor Dysgraphia Clinical Practice Guidelines
The Motor Dysgraphia Clinical Practice Guidelines were developed for Occupational Therapists by DOT(WA) following enquires made to the Western Australian Occupational Therapy Association (WAOTA). The Guidelines were developed to use when working with students with Motor Dysgraphia. The Guidelines provide information about the identification, assessment and intervention of Motor Dysgraphia. An information sheet has also been developed for use by parents and professionals such as allied health workers and teachers.
The purpose of these clinical practice guidelines was to provide occupational therapists working in Western Australia with an understanding of: The features of motor dysgraphia and evidence-based assessment and intervention for this disorder. Additionally, the resources may be used to inform other disciplines about the role of occupational therapists in the assessment and intervention of children and adolescents with motor dysgraphia.
Jane Yeates, Occupational Therapist, was appointed the Project Officer to develop the guidelines, having consulted with an expert panel of Occupational Therapists including, Gillian Hurley, Caryn Mincherton, Maria Rosenius, Chris Dove and Roisin O’Farrell.
Thanks are extended to all involved with the project including the above listed, and Fiona Kemp, DOT(WA) chairperson and Jacqui Hunt, DOT(WA) vice-chairperson for their help coordinating this project.
Please ensure these guidelines are used by Occupational Therapists only. The attached information sheet may be shared to provide information about Motor Dysgraphia.
