Does your child need an evaluation? Do you need more information about how your child learns?

We offer evaluations and testing however, it is not mandatory to have the testing to participate in Write-Well Handwriting Clinics

If you have already had testing completed at your child's school or they have had outside of school testing please consider sharing the information with the Occupational Therapist so she can know how to properly address handwriting concerns.
