We are offering a handwriting camp for children grades 1 – 3, based on the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum by Jan Olsen. This program will provide kids who have difficulty with handwriting the necessary skills to write with greater ease.

Dysgraphia, non-automatic handwriting that is difficult to read, continues to challenge our students within tutoring sessions and at school. It is documented the act of writing presents difficulties for 10-30% of elementary school children. Teaching our students, a proven method to overcome their “messy” handwriting will instill confidence in all areas of their lives.


Outcomes
  • Reduce anxiety with handwriting performance
  • Jumpstart for school year
  • Copy of Make handwriting enjoyable/fun
