Fix Common Handwriting Issues 2X Faster Using Fluency and Simple Data Collection

Despite the boom in technology, handwriting is still one of the most powerful tools students use to communicate and demonstrate learning across subjects and grades. However, the art of handwriting is a complex skill, which may not come easy to all students, especially those diagnosed with developmental delay or dysgraphia. This 2-hour course addresses the myriad of underlying issues that can impact handwriting performance, from the basics of pencil grip, letter formation, and pace; to addressing the sensory-motor mechanics required for handwriting success. This course provides practitioners with worksheets for simple, step-by-step strategies to use the very next day. Save time while making 2X the progress by implementing fluency-based handwriting interventions and making data-based decisions!
