The present study was aimed at examining the effect of central and peripheral vision resulted from handwriting components including hand, stationery, writing field, and handwriting on the motor control of fine near- and far-point copying skills among elementary children. In near-point copying, the individual copies from a pattern that is near him, and in far-point copying, from a pattern that is far. Twelve elementary students in Tehran with an age range of 11±0.9 years were randomly selected as the study sample. Their fine near- and far-point copying skills were examined in 5 stages. During each stage, one of the states of removing the feedback of central and peripheral vision resulted from handwriting components were taken into account. Two criteria were considered in examining the individuals. First, the individuals’ handwriting speed in terms of the number of correct words written per minute, and second the quality of their handwriting which was evaluated using the Minnesota Handwriting Assessment. By setting statistical significant at 0.05, the results obtained from ANOVA with repeated measures showed that central and peripheral visions resulted from handwriting components had a significant effect on far- and near-point copying speed control and the quality of far- and near-point copying among the elementary students. The results indicated that during copying, individuals did not equally profit from the information obtained from different handwriting components, the information obtained from some components was necessary for handwriting, and visual feedback of some components was less needed.
