Aims: This quantitative study compared effects of occupation-based versus handwriting interventions on handwriting. Methods: Twenty-seven participants, mean age 6.3, participated in a 3-week study. Initially, there was no significant difference between groups on handwriting. Results: Occupation-based interventions were more effective on handwriting and visual–perceptual skills. Handwriting interventions lead to a greater gain in perceptual–motor skills. Conclusion: Both interventions are beneficial.
