There can be a number of different reasons why children may have writing problems. In some cases it can result from immaturity in the neurological pathways involved in the coordination of head, arm, hand and eye movements. Most children learn to “accommodate” penmanship issues by compensating in a number of ways. If the physical action of hand writing doesn’t become automated, it can interfere with a child’s ability to think about content and carry out the physical action of writing at the same time.

Beyond the early stages of learning to form letters, most later education requires the ability to think and write at the same time.

Often intelligent and orally articulate children may be quite often labeled as being lazy, disruptive and underachieving in the classroom.
