When Your Child Hates Handwriting –The Book

Helping young children learn to write can be a bumpy road and often a downright battlefield. Handwriting requires more skills than anything else we ask children to learn:  Thinking, language, movement, memorization, spelling and more. Is it any wonder that more than a quarter of all children struggle with handwriting challenges?

Handwriting curricula does not address what to do when a child is challenged, over and over again, by learning to write. We need a new approach to teaching our struggling children how to write without frustration . 

With 50+ fun and easy activities that can be incorporated into handwriting practice, When Your Child Hates Handwriting helps parents approach handwriting instruction in a new way.  Further, it details out how to recognize when a deeper problem is present and how to seek help for the child. Appropriate for use with children from ages 3 to 12.
