Handwriting readiness

registration required | Limited Availability

Led by an occupational therapist, this workshop will provide a developmentally appropriate approach to handwriting using the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum including hands-on strategies that build early literacy and math concepts as well as fine motor development, correct grip, and letter formation skills to build a good foundation for school readiness.

This workshop series is ideal for children ages 4-6 years old and will implement, teach, and remediate handwriting using effective, multisensory strategies and active teaching including learning through songs, games, and crafts designed to make learning fun and exciting.

Children who struggle with motor skills or experience cognitive difficulties can also benefit from the teaching strategies used in this workshop.
