In just eight weekly sessions, the Speed Up! book provides a multi-sensory course of help for any child aged 8-13 whose handwriting is illegible, slow or lacking in fluency.
Poor handwriting hinders many children’s progress - right across the curriculum. Unfortunately, most handwriting schemes do little to help children who are struggling with this vital skill. Here, at last, is a new and highly effective approach. Developed by a leading paediatric occupational therapist and designed specifically for older children struggling with handwriting, Speed Up! gets to the root of writing difficulties by developing kinesthetic awareness through multi-sensory activity and exercise.
The programme includes a baseline assessment • clear, fully illustrated, photocopiable instruction sheets • an overview of the theory behind the practice • advice on identifying underlying causes of difficulty and how to tackle them.
The sessions may be delivered by a teacher, teaching assistant, classroom assistant or therapist. The emphasis throughout is on enjoyment, building self-esteem and developing writing confidence. Contains 64 A4 pages.
