The activities on this website have been developed, published and sourced by an occupational therapist, Bunty McDougall, who has a special interest in handwriting.  However, you must at all times, be aware that you are using these activities and programmes at your own risk.

The Happy Handwriter resources, which may most certainly be used in conjunction with occupational therapy, are not in themselves occupational therapy.  Occupational therapy takes place following specific referral for an identified difficulty, assessment, parent feedback, and recommendations of options for therapeutic intervention.

The Happy Handwriter resources may be used by parents, teachers, homeschooling families and therapists to bring about changes and improvements in fine motor, pre-handwriting and handwriting skills, but are not in themselves occupational therapy.  The Happy Handwriter does not offer occupational therapy.  Never leave a child unattended during these activities.

The activities, programmes and resources should not be relied upon as a substitute for professional medical advice or evaluation from a medical doctor or any other qualified health care providers, including occupational therapists.

The Happy Handwriter, Bunty McDougall, or anyone associated with her may not be held responsible or liable for the use of these activities and programmes.
