Abstract: The purpose of this research is to assess Chinese handwriting skills of children with cerebral palsy (CP) by computerized tool. This tool can provide immediate information about children’s handwriting process and products. The parameters of process record the spatial and temporal characteristics of handwriting, which including the total writing time, on-paper time, in-air time, the ratio, and writing speed. The parameter of production is accuracy of handwriting. 14 children with CP and 13 typically developing children participated in this study. The results indicated that children with CP had significantly lower accuracy rate in Chinese handwriting. In addition, children with CP also demonstrated longer on-paper time and in-air time in writing Chinese. Further studies will focus on identifying clinical factors which result in the handwriting difficulties of children with CP.
