#14 The Struggles of Handwriting

Strategies to improve your Child's Handwriting

This is a practically helpful episode of the podcast.  If you're concerned about your child's handwriting, Syd will give you strategies and tactics to help them improve.  Here are some of the key points:

  • Don't tackle it head on - If your child sits and continually writes, they won't improve and they'll find it boring!
  • There's a good chance that their poor handwriting is connected to a lack of fine motor skills development - Syd explains during this show how you can check to see if this is the issue.
  • Great ways to help your child's fine motor skills improve includes; sewing, paper weaving, tying knots and playing with lego.
