Developed by a leading paediatric occupational therapist, this highly effective approach has been specifically designed for children who are struggling with handwriting. Speed Up! gets to the root of writing difficulties by developing kinaesthetic awareness through multi-sensory activity and exercise.
The programme includes:
- A baseline assessment.
- Clear, fully illustrated, photocopiable instruction sheets for the administrator.
- Advice on identifying underlying causes of difficulty and how to tackle them properly.
The sessions may be delivered by a teacher, teaching assistant, classroom assistant, or therapist. The emphasis throughout the assessment is on enjoyment, building self-esteem, and –of course– developing writing confidence.
