Occupational Therapy -> Handwriting -> Letter Formation

Letter Formation

Letter formation refers to the way in which a letter is printed or written. Letters are meant to be formed from top to bottom and left to right. Letters are formed using prewriting strokes such as horizontal and vertical lines, diagonal lines, and curved lines. An individual should be able to form prewriting stokes prior to being taught how to write letters.
