My son went to OT for handwriting at 5 and it helped tremendously. He had hypermobility. They taught him how to tie a shoe too. In kindergarten he showed ADD symptoms, trouble with routines and not knowing where he is j. Space (that was a new one for me). The OT refers him out to Vision Therapy. He was afraid to ride a bike but since therapy is doing awesome on a bike. He has a difficulty with peripheral vision along with other vision terms. If he wears classes or not it’s worth checking in to. Kids with 20/20 vision can have difficulties with both eyes working together with the brain. I have a diagnosis of ADD so I figured he was. We are going to continue to try this and see where it takes him then look further into ADD as needed. Just another avenue to think about.
