Get it Write! (Handwriting Clinic)
There are many different components to handwriting besides the act of picking up a pencil. Some of the issues that are associated with handwriting difficulties are posture, pencil grip, letter formation, including the size and shape of letters, shape recognition, hand strength and coordination. These classes will offer activities specifically designed to promote improved handwriting mechanics. Pre and post assessment data will be collected to monitor progress. Children LOVE the Get it Write programming because rather than focus on a drill based, direct approach to improved handwriting, activities are centered around movement and play that provide the foundational skills needed to make handwriting an automated, effective task.
