Handwriting, Keyboarding and Beyond is an interactive and fun series of live online classes that will develop the fundamental skills kids need to write and type efficiently and neatly. In this 12 class series, kids 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 class 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 advised to help children complete the exercises safely and to help with ergonomic positioning. The preceding, 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 Google Meet video call on Mondays and Thursdays, access to the exercise video playlist, Pencil Grip (if assigned), Theraputty Handwriting Without Tears practice book and Keyboarding Without Tears online access.
Shipping materials to your home is included, but if registration is received less than 1 week before the session start date, the parent is responsible for express shipping costs.

Our bonus yoga classes are designed to be complementary to the activities completed in Handwriting, Keyboarding and Beyond. The first 4 classes will focus on beginner moves, the middle 4 classes will be intermediate level and the final 4 classes will incorporate more challenging moves. The yoga sessions will help kids become more in tune with their body, be aware of their breathing, build strength and flexibility and help them develop greater self-awareness. They will be able to return to these poses time and time again during times of high stress and anxiety.
We are running 2 sessions of this program. Please note that session dates for the Handwriting, Keyboarding and Beyond are not interchangeable. We are unable to offer makeups or refunds for missed classes.
