Abstract:This study examined if special designed touchscreen handwriting software could improve the handwriting of children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). Twenty-four children on a school for Special Primary Education accomplished writing exercises. These writing exercises includes 6 fonts and 6 linking fonts. Twelve children accomplished writing exercises which were played on a touch device (experimental condition) and twelve children accomplished writing exercises (same fonts) trough a traditional writing method (control condition) during six experimental sessions. The results were measured with a handwriting exam which were taken before and after the experimental sessions. The results indicate partially enhancing of handwriting legibility as a result of using the touchscreen writing software. Possibilities for further research and practical implications are discussed.
