Is handwriting important?
You bet it is! When students struggle with handwriting, it impacts all of their academics. Even in this age of technology, handwriting remains the primary tool of communication and knowledge assessment in the classroom. Most standardized tests have handwritten portions. The unfortunate reality is that sometimes kids don't have the ability to express what they really know because of poor handwriting. School subjects are much easier to learn when handwriting is an automatic process, because students need to think and write at the same time.
The Handwriting Without Tears printing and cursive programs draw from years of innovation and research to provide developmentally appropriate, multisensory tools and strategies for students at any age. Research shows that children learn more effectively by actively doing. Handwriting Without Tears makes legible and fluent handwriting a skill that students can easily master.
