Effective use of the hands to engage in a variety of developmental occupations is critical for a child to be successful and independent. Understanding and choosing effective interventions to improve fine-motor skills and handwriting is imperative for pediatric OTs. This study used occupational performance and handwriting as both the intervention and the outcome, with both being found to be beneficial for skill development and sustained engagement in fine-motor activities.
