Handwriting Club Enrichment Program
Why Handwriting Club?
There are many reasons a child might have messy or illegible handwriting. Handwriting difficulties may be caused by fine motor deficits, visual motor deficits, limited instruction on letter formation and/or the development of bad habits, including pencil grip. Some children do not outgrow their handwriting difficulties, even after years of schooling, and those issues are carried into adulthood. Early intervention is key to significant improvement.
Handwriting Club Program Overview
The Child Success Center’s Handwriting Club will engage your child in a fun learning environment while helping them develop:
- greater hand control and coordination – key components for rhythmic and fluent handwriting
- correct letter formation
- consistent sizing and spacing of letters and words
Our highly skilled Occupational Therapists, using a developmentally based curriculum and fun, multi-sensory approach, will support learning and cognitive functions. The program also improves line control and alignment, overall legibility and most importantly, your child will achieve greater motivation and self-confidence in their ability to communicate. Handwriting will become a natural and automatic skill that will enable students to focus on their work rather than how to form the letters. Students will succeed and have pride in their work!
Handwriting Club is divided into groups designed to match specific skill and age levels. A screening session will determine which group is best for your child. Our small group size and interactive indoor gym promotes a positive approach to learning an often difficult and challenging skill. We incorporate multi-sensory strategies and whole brain learning – featuring the Handwriting Without Tears® program. This easy-to-learn curriculum makes handwriting mastery joyful for students of all levels.
Several groups will address different skill levels:
- Level A – Writing Readiness
- Level B – Proper Printing
- Level C – Advanced Printing
- Level D – Cursive
A one-on-one session with one of our highly skilled Occupational Therapists will determine your child’s specific challenges with handwriting skills (also known as dysgraphia), and the benefits of therapeutic support. Once the OT Screening is complete a customized plan of action with be discussed with you. The screenings can be completed at your school, if there are multiple children in need, or at the center.
