Abstract
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of Handwriting Without Tears® (HWT®) and fading prompts on the handwriting of a preschooler with developmental delays. HWT® methods and visual prompts were implemented in the study to improve the participant’s handwriting on the letters in her first name. The participant was required to form, trace, and copy the letters in her name using HWT® materials and visual prompts. At the end of the study, the visual prompts were faded until the participant was able to write her name independently. The interventions included in the study were overall successful for the participant.
