Perceptual and practical aspects of child's drawing and handwriting, plus the importance of early identification of developmental disorders in children, arise the essential need for screening pupils' handwritings, testing their handwriting abilities and readiness. This research summarizes approaches in an automated screening system that can assist teachers, occupational therapist and psychologists monitor pupils for difficulties that result in improper handwriting. The following clarifies its importance and effects, discusses its aspects of system implementation and resources needed, plus its prospect benefits and outcomes. This new insight to children's handwriting assessment and screening systems provides new openings to targeted research in several fields of study interrelated to this issue. Ultimate system will in fact benefit educational system and public health in addition to generation of new knowledge about complicated human performances, children development and different languages inspirations. In the following, shortcoming in handwriting standards are mentioned, position features are introduced and global features are discussed. Multi-feature acquisition and fusion in different levels are considered in system implementation.
