Handwriting Without Tears

The goal of Handwriting Without Tears (HWT) is for handwriting to become a natural, automatic skill for children.  It utilizes a multi-sensory approach in teaching writing techniques, and creative tools to emphasize proper letter formation and neatness. This program will cover printing of all Capital Letters and Numbers 1-9.

Who Should Participate?

Children at least 5 years of age who are ready to develop and/or improve writing skills are appropriate. Children need to be able to follow directions, have letter name recognition, hold a pencil, and attend to the therapist without direct help.  Consistent attendance is an important component to success in this program; as the material builds from week to week.  Children will also need to practice at home, and will receive weekly practice sheet packets.
