Why Children Struggle
- A child may have fine motor problems that affect handwriting.
- Holding the pencil incorrectly. If the pencil is not held the right way, your child will have pain in their hands, wrists or fingers.
- Applying excessive or inadequate pressure when writing.
- Difficulty in letter and sizing formation, spacing of words, sense of direction.
- Inconsistency in use of upper- and lower-case letters.
How do we address these problems?
- Our approach focuses on the correct formation, size, spacing and placement of letters.
- We offer a variety of writing instruments to enhance motivation and interest in the writing process.
- We incorporate activities beyond the structured lessons to reinforce skills.
- We offer and encourage non-writing activities that develop fine motor control and the pincer grip.
