If your child is having difficulty with handwriting and finds it to be a daunting task, here are some simple strategies to implement:

Highlighting or coloring top/bottom lines on the paper can help with line adherence and size consistency.

Try thicker or shorter writing utensils to help with grasp patterns and for kiddos with hand weakness.

Slant boards provide added stability for upper extremity support and help encourage an upright sitting posture.

Let’s set our kiddos up for success and make writing fun and enjoyable instead of a chore.
