Detailed Assessment of Speed of Handwriting (DASH)

A. Barnett, S. E Henderson, B. Scheib & J. Schulz


The Detailed Assessment of Speed of Handwriting is ideal for providing evidence for Concession Arrangements. It can also play a role in identifying children with handwriting difficulties and provides relevant information for planning intervention.

The assessment includes five subtests, each testing a different aspect of handwriting speed. The subtests examine fine motor and precision skills, the speed of producing well known symbolic material, the ability to alter speed of performance on two tasks with identical content and free writing competency.

UK standardisation

Standardised subtest and composite scores are provided, based on a nationally stratified normative sample of over 500 children collected across the UK in 2006.
