Handwriting without Tears® Improves Motor Skills

Drawing from years of research and innovation, the Handwriting Without Tears® curriculum provides developmentally appropriate, multisensory tools and strategies for your child. The program follows research that demonstrates children learn more effectively by actively doing, with materials that address all styles of learning.

The emphasis and expectations placed on your child to take notes and create expository writing in early grades is greater than it has ever been.

Despite the overwhelming recent infusion of computer and keyboard based communication, recent research findings strongly support the active teaching of handwriting. At Spot On Therapies, we realize that writing by hand improves your child’s creative writing and fine motor skills. Elementary school students have actually been found to write more and faster by hand than typing on a keyboard.
