Handwriting, Keyboarding, and Beyond! is an interactive and fun series of live, online classes that develops the fundamental skills kids need to write and type efficiently and neatly. Over 12 classes, participants will work on their postural control, reflex integration, sensory systems, and visual-motor abilities. Developing these skills will also lead to improvements in sports and musical performance.
Each class consists of fun activities that promote an optimal level of attention for learning new skills and avoids drill-based learning which can lead to resistance and frustration. Lasting and effective changes will be created as the program fills in any gaps in a child’s neurodevelopmental stages. All the strategies taught can be used by parents to further facilitate learning at home.
Adult participation is required to help children complete the exercises and to help with ergonomic positioning. Parents will receive an email outlining the structure of the classes for the upcoming week and any additional materials required.
Included with the class cost is access to the live video class, access to the exercise video playlist, fine motor handouts, fine motor tools, Handwriting Without Tears practice book, and Keyboarding Without Tear's online access.
