Handwriting Without Tears


Handwriting Without Tears

 

It is very common for children to have difficulties developing the skills and functional pencil grip needed for fluent, legible handwriting. Research has found that handwriting difficulties can lead to frustration and resistance due to the child not being able to produce legible writing or keep up in class.  In High School students can be marked lower due to their handwriting. 

 

The Handwriting Without Tears (HWT)  incorporates playing, singing and hands on building of letters to assist children to develop the important skills they need to print words. HWT is a fun, practical and multi sensory handwriting program. Click here to read more about HWT.
