Purpose of Study 

The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility of the SWAT-IT2 protocol. The SWAT-IT2 aims to provide simple, personalized, and dynamic interventions that individuals can use to improve their level of functioning in handwriting, eating, or an occupation of their choice. The SWAT-IT2 has not been tested and thus, the feasibility of this intervention as a typical treatment for individuals experiencing intention tremor is unknown.
