5 Days of Pre-Writing and Handwriting Tips e-mail series. A Free series by an Occupational Therapy Assistant.

5 Days of Pre-Writing And Handwriting Tips

In this free e-mail series we will take a look at the following topics:

  • Gross motor skills and handwriting – a strong core and bilateral coordination are a must for handwriting.
  • Fine motor skills and handwriting – which ones are important? what should you focus on to improve handwriting?
  • Visual-motor skills and handwriting – what are visual-motor skills and what are some activities you can do to encourage it?
  • Pre-writing skills and handwriting – what exactly are pre-writing skills? Why are they important?
  • Handwriting tips and suggestions – just some basic suggestions for common problem areas to get you started.

This is not an exhaustive series. It would take so many LONG e-mails to cover everything. But I try to give you chunks of information that are easy to understand and get you started in the right direction. I also share a lot of resources for further reading and research on handwriting throughout the series.

Who is this Pre-writing and Handwriting e-mail series for?

This series is perfect for you if you could describe yourself in one of the following ways:

  • A parent with a child entering Kindergarten (or preschool) and just wanting to be prepared.
  • A parent who has a child who is struggling with handwriting (either at school or in a homeschool environment).
  • A teacher who is looking for ways to support her students with handwriting in the classroom.
  • A new Occupational therapist or new to pediatrics who are looking for techniques for working with handwriting in a pediatric setting.
