Teaching Handwriting

This section outlines the importance of good, easy handwriting and offers some tips on initial handwriting instruction. It mentions left-handedness and gross and fine motor exercises children can do to practise their starting points, directionality and pencil grip. It also defines dysgraphia and explains why arbitrary ‘pen licence’ schemes at schools are discriminatory and as far away from child-centred teaching as can be.
