F3 - Pencil to Paper: Rationale and Research


Nov 8, 2019 10:00am ‐ Nov 8, 2019 11:00am


Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

Handwriting underlies all levels of written language-letters, written words constructed from letters, and written sentences constructed from multiple words. Teachers and others judge students' abilities and grade them based on the appearance of their written work. The truth is 1 in 5 children, with or without dyslexia, may struggle with handwriting and sometimes keyboarding. The brain uses its limited resources more efficiently when letter formation is automatic so all children benefit from instruction that builds this necessary automaticity.

As an academic language therapist, I feel this is such an important topic. I see handwriting instruction being abandoned in public schools and it is so disappointing and such a disservice to our dyslexic students. Thank you for presenting the topic and the research. It is good to have to pass on to parents and teachers to emphasize the importance of handwriting as opposed to keyboarding.
