    Handwriting of teenagers often presents problems for document examiners because the writing may have less individuality and more variation than the handwriting of an adult. This survey reveals that many unusual characteristics occur with some frequency in the handwriting of adolescents. Two styles of handwriting that were prevalent among the survey participants are described and discussed.
