Handwriting is a complex task and therefore the selection of writing equipment should be made only after careful assessment of the person's abilities and needs. For people with hand function difficulties, adaptive equipment, such as pen grips, holders and pens with special features are available to help them to be as independent as possible with the daily tasks of writing and creative drawing. If these items are not appropriate for the needs of the individual, assistive
technology such as a computer with appropriate input devices should be considered.
