Handwriting – Printing and Cursive
Handwriting skills are often not taught explicitly in today’s classrooms. However, research tells us that the development of good handwriting skills has a strong impact on student learning and academic success. For this reason, we offer proper letter formation instruction using the Handwriting Without Tears™ program in our 1-to-1 academic support sessions.
Handwriting Without Tears™ is a research-based, award-winning instructional program designed to teach strategies for letter formation, spacing, neatness, writing efficiency, and cursive connections. It is particularly helpful for kids who:
are beginning to learn how to print or write cursive and need to develop proper foundation skills.
struggle with writing tasks or need practice developing their grapho-motor skills.
have been formally diagnosed with dysgraphia by an occupational therapist.
Please refer to the 1-to-1 Programming page for in-depth information about our 1-to-1 personalized teaching.
For an in-depth focus on developing or improving handwriting skills we recommend our handwriting camp program for printing and cursive, Power Pencils.
