This scoping review, using Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines, reviews and critiques the efficacy of interventions used to remediate handwriting skills of adults poststroke. Data sources were OT SEARCH, PubMed Central, PubMed, PsycInfo, CINAHL, and MEDLINE. Search terms were CVA, stroke, adults, handwriting, fine motor, rehabilitation, and remediation. Nineteen studies were critiqued and organized by intervention type. Few studies address remediation of handwriting skills of adults poststroke. More research is needed.
