Handwriting

Handwriting is vital to academic learning. Even with technology, the ability to write legibility and effectively is important as it also encourages learning and brain development. Children who struggle with writing benefit greatly from Occupational Therapy. Proper handwriting is taught in a fun and child centred way, to develop a love for writing.
