Handwriting Without Tears

This is a truly effective programme for all children, but especially so for children with learning difficulties: Autism, Down Syndrome, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD and Dysgraphia .It is widely used as a resource for children who are being homeschooled. 
The programme covers letters, capitals, lower case, numbers, size, shape, placement, directionality, smaller size, fluency, neatness, words to paragraphs .  It features easy to follow instructions, review and mastery activities to avoid reversal of letters and numbers.
The programme is designed to give children many opportunities to develop motor memory as well as visual memory experiences of letters and numbers. The use of the wooden pieces, slate board, playdough, songs and actions make this a very successful multi-sensory programme.
Capitals are taught first. If your school mandates that lower case be taught first, start at that part of the programme and follow up with capitals.  For children who are struggling, they will learn better with capitals first.
