My 10 year old son has terrible handwriting. I can barely read it at times. Not only do we have the ADHD to contend with, but he's also a lefty. I'm a righty and it's hard to instruct him on better writing because I hold my pencil different. To be fair, there have also been issues with his fine motor skills (discovered in Kindergarten). But the OT at school has worked with him, and his grasp is much better.
The doctor said that now that he's on medication his handwriting will improve. The last parent-teacher conference, I was told that his teacher has seen an improvement in his writing. I just don't see it.
