The Star Spacer is a clever handwriting tool made of see-through plastic which acts as a guide to help the child understand spacing, sizing, and alignment of letters and words to promote more legible handwriting.
Designed by an occupational therapist, the Star Spacer helps children who are experiencing difficulties with handwriting. It is so simple that most children grasp the concept immediately.
The results are immediate.
The Star Spacer helps spacing, sizing and alignment difficulties become a problem of the past. And, for many children, practicing with the Star Spacer helps to develop an awareness of what is needed for them to create legible handwriting.
With just a little practice, many students show improvement in spacing awareness, which allows them to write legibly without the tool.
Age Range: The tool is most appropriate for elementary age writers, such as Grades 1-5, although older students with writing difficulties have also shown improvement using the Star Spacer.
