Improve handwriting with these programs & products designed to be fun and hold kids' attention while providing proper instruction.
Handwriting Help for Kids
teaches kids handwriting (all ages and levels) using similar letter groups to show kids where to start letters, and a teaching sequence that balances difficult and simpler lessons. Children master the correct "feel" for writing each letter (including lefties).
Loops and Other Groups: A Kinesthetic Writing System helps 2nd grade through high school students with learning disabilities and perceptual delays learn cursive writing- along with their nondisabled peers in a typical mainstreamed classroom.
Gail Kushnir's products are easy to implement, fun to use workbooks for young children to help develop emotional intelligence, pre-writing skills and writing skills. All activities are based on a unique systematic educational-therapeutic approach to child development. (more at bottom of page)

Two other programs focus on manuscript writing: Big Strokes for Little Folks is designed for children who are having difficulty with learning handwriting and offers a large selection of remedial worksheets, and First Strokes uses a multisensory approach where letters are grouped within categories and students are taught to recognize the first stroke in drawing each letter.
