How is your child's handwriting?

What have you done to help improve it?

It's still pretty bad. He's making it darker and remembering spaces, but his formation is still all over the place.

If anyone has any advice, I'm all ears.

I am in the same boat. Alexis still needs a lot of hand over hand assistance for writing. Grr, even with markers or dry erase boards.

We ordered and just recieved a cross over pencil grip to see if proper thumb/forefinger placement will help with the mess that is Connors handwriting. He loves it so far..

Hi! This might be the wrong thread i'm still feeling my way around here. My son was having the hardest time with writing his letters backwards and taking the time to dot letters for him to practice with or find them on the internet and print them out for him. It was exhausting. His birthday was coming up and I was looking for thank you cards for him that were already pre printed with the dots inside. and I found this website that actually had them. I ordered a box, thinking no harm no foul. They were amazing and because they were actually thank you cards and not just a printed practice sheets. Believe it or not he knows the difference and made it quite clear that he did. He was practically begging me to finish them.

I orderd some Christmas thank you cards for him and Its one of the best things I've ever found or done for him.

I thought I'd pass on the link if anyone is interested. I'm open for other ideas as well.

Thanks and by the way this is my first post here! I love this message board!

Mary

oh here's the link!

Hi, I'm new here, my son is dysgraphic and it has been reconmended that we try Handwriting without Tears program. He was working on this with his OT and making some improvement until she left. (Still waiting for a new OT that takes kids) You can actually buy the materials on line just search Handwriting without tears. It uses a two line paper instead of three. It does work.
