Poor Posture While Writing
What can I do if my child has poor posture while
The chair height should allow 90 degrees of hip and knee flexion with flat feet on the floor. Desk height should be 2"above the bend of the elbow. No collapsing on the desk or sliding down the chair.
What if he/she switches hands for writing tasks?
Provide two- handed tasks that require use of a dominant and assist hand. Use an incline or slant board to position papers during writing to increase the need for an assist hand.
How can I help with poor letter formation or reversals?
Place an alphabet strip on the student's desk either in cursive or in print. Use a highlighter to underline the students most commonly reversed letters.
