Handwriting Training Courses

 

HOLIDAY HANDWRITING COURSES:

 

These very popular, small group courses help children to improve their cursive writing fluency. Courses teach and support ergonomically efficient writing posture together with correct pencil grip and integrate this with writing technique. Courses follow a structured pathway with opportunities for individual differentiation and incidental learning.  We break in the middle of a session to work on coordination and ball skills, weather permitting we do this outside in the centre's garden. The children do work hard but its also great fun.

The most common feedback is "I didn't know writing could be so much fun"!

 

Parents learn how to support gains made by attending session.
