Non-Dominant Hand Training

A non-dominant hand training program (NDHT) typically begins with an initial assessment to determine appropriate goals for the client.
Appropriate goals for the non-dominant hand may include:

  • Improving range of motion and strength
  • Improving grip or pinch strength
  • Improving gross and or fine motor coordination
  • Developing writing ability
  • Learning one handed typing technique

The therapist will structure a program to address the participantís goals. Session time is intended for training and monitoring the progress of the participant. It is the participantís responsibility to practice the lessons received and to complete required homework assignments.
