The term graphic skills refers to the ability to produce straight and curved lines of different lengths, directions and positions on the page to produce the basic shapes and patterns needed for drawing and learning to print letters.
The HWG Developing Graphic Skills: Assessment Handbook provides a structured approach to assessment of the different aspects of completing selected graphic tasks: attention, following instructions, evaluating own work, motor control and motor planning.
Detailed instructions are provided for each tasks along with templates and checklists for recording all aspects of a child's performance on the task.
Working through the assessment tasks provides parents and teachers with insight into the child's abilities and difficulties and provides direction for selecting remedial tasks.
