Handwriting assessment

Dyspraxia/DCD Ireland provides occupational therapy handwriting assessments for children and young people aged between 5 and 20 years. These assessments are carried out by our Occupational Therapist (OT) Stephen Hodnett. Stephen has worked with children and young people in a number of settings both as a CORU registered occupational therapist and as a teacher for over a decade.

The DCD diagnostic assessment process includes:

  • Speaking to families via phone or video call
  • Conducting an in-person assessment of handwriting, ergonomics and fine motor performance.
  • Production of a detailed report with outcomes and follow-on recommendations.
  • Follow-up call to explain the report and the recommendations contained within, if required.

The cost of the assessment is €200 for members and €220.00 for non-members and includes both the assessment and a comprehensive report.
