Handwriting Group Summer 2021

This summer we will hold 2 sessions of our Handwriting Group. The group consists of 8 classes held over 4 weeks and meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10-11am. It is for kids between the ages of 5-10. The goal of the group is to lay the foundation for efficient handwriting by working on the gross motor, fine motor and visual motor skills that support this complex skill. Parents are provided with weekly newsletters that explain the skills worked on and activities to practice at home. We will work on correct pencil grip, correct formation of letters, letter reversals and writing legibility. Participants will work mainly in print, but cursive will be taught if appropriate. Each session starts with sensory-motor activities that work on the proprioceptive, vestibular, tactile and visual systems as well as activities to improve fine motor and visual-motor skills.

The causal relation between exploration and cognitive development has been proposed in both directions: smarter, more behaviorally flexible species are more likely to play, and play may support the acquisitions of motor, cognitive, and social skills. (1)
