Developed by a registered occupational therapist, Handwriting Without Tears is a developmentally-based handwriting program.
That means it pays attention, in a way that no other program we know does, to the developmental needs of people — of whatever age — who are trying to learn how to write.
This program offers extremely basic exercises in figure-ground discrimination and top-to-bottom, left-to-right sequencing. When it comes to forming letters it begins with all capitals. Why? Because, unlike the lower-case p, q, b, and d, the capital letters are all very easy to distinguish. Your children don't mix them up!
Designed to eliminate problems with reversals, spacing, placement, and letter and numeral formation.
