Author: Michael Milone, PhD

Description
The THS-R is an untimed, clinical assessment of neurosensory integration skills evident in handwriting (both manuscript and cursive) that are often disrupted in students with learning difficulties. The THS-R provides standardized assessment of children's handwriting ability for both manuscript and cursive styles that can be used with any of the popular handwriting programs (such as Palmer, Zaner-Bloser, D'Nealian). The THS-R is not a classroom assessment of penmanship.

Test Kit Includes:
• Manual
• 15 manuscript test booklets
• 15 cursive test booklets
• 30 Record Forms
• Training Video
Results of the THS-R can be used to:

• Identify neurosensory integration problems
• Monitor progress of students with disabilities
• Determine if neurosensory integration difficulties are contributing to students' learning problems
• Guide instructional or rehabilitation practices

Changes to the new edition include:

• Norms extended through age 18 (manuscript and cursive)
• Nationally stratified norms
• Simplified scoring procedures
• Clarified scoring criteria
• Handwriting exemplars that reflect current styles including D'Nealian, Handwriting Without Tears, Universal, and Zaner-Bloser
• Abbreviated administration procedures
• Scoring examples
• Scoring training video

Testing and scoring time is approximately 25 minutes. The Manual now provides guidance on how the THS-R can be used for progress monitoring. Also included is a video tutorial to assist practitioners in the scoring process. Subtest scores are reported as scaled scores and percentile ranks, • and an overall standard score has been added. The THS-R was normed on 1,500 U.S. individuals.

THS-R Practical Guide to Handwriting
Available separately, the reproducible Practical Guide to Handwriting: Cursive and Manuscript provides numerous exercises for students who may be experiencing visual-motor difficulties.
