Handwriting Without Tears is a developmentally appropriate, multi-sensory handwriting instruction program for all learning styles in grades K-5. It uses hands-on, multi-sensory materials and was designed in such a way that it introduces shapes, numbers, and letters in an order that matches the progression of children’s developmental abilities so that it is easier for them to practice, learn, and remember. An occupational therapist will lead these sessions focusing on manuscript or cursive handwriting, as needed. The sessions will emphasis hand strength, pencil grip, letter formation, appropriate sizing, spacing, line orientation, and writing speed.
