Handwriting difficulties (HD) are a top reason for referral to OT. Executive function (EF) was described as an underlying mechanism of daily functioning and HD. This study found differences between handwriting of adolescents with HD and their peers with other daily function difficulties but no relation between EFs and legibility. The Handwriting Legibility Scale is suggested for evaluation of legibility in adolescents.
