Adolescents with handwriting difficulties are referred to OT services due to inadequate writing process (speed and space) or product (illegibility). Executive function (EF) components are one of the underlying mechanisms of handwriting. The results indicate that EF levels of adolescents with handwriting difficulties were correlated only with product legibility. The results emphasize the importance of using a standardized tool to evaluate legibility in this population.
