Writing Skills Checklist

3-15 years

About the Checklist:

Brief-write up

Writing skills are one of the most crucial skills for the academic success of every child because the academic ability of students is largely reliant on their ability to express thoughts in the form of written communication.

Writing skills form an essential part of a child's development. Writing involves the components of manual dexterity and fine motor skills to have legible handwriting and it also involves components of spelling, grammar, and story planning.

Children with writing challenges and/or dysgraphia face difficulty in writing legibly, putting their thoughts on paper, and/or in spelling. It is important to pay attention to and identify the early signs of writing difficulties in children to provide timely help. Early identification and intervention play a key role in helping children to cope with their limitations effectively.
