A Single Session of NCK Therapy in Ameliorating Excessive Pressure while Writing in a Child with Writing Difficulty: A Case Study

N. Chandar Kumar

Abstract: It is well known fact that there is no cure for Specific Learning Disability (SLD) and it needs life-long consistent training to sustain the improvement induced by specific therapy/remedial training. Especially when it comes to dysgraphia, one of the symptoms which induce more suffering is pain while writing due to excessive pressure given by the child. A boy aged 10 years was referred for evaluation and remedy for writing difficulty. Through several years of observation, therapeutic practice and review of literature, a new therapy was designed and attempted to ameliorate the excessive pressure in just a single therapy session. This new therapy was given a name NCK therapy as it involves neuro-cognitive-kinesthetic components. With this therapy, the child was able to write at ease, without excessive pressure and pain, within the short span of one hour. Then his writing will be further improved with pre-writing strokes, letter construction, word building and speed.
