Overcoming handwriting difficulties

Step 5. Check the pre-handwriting pattern formation

Check that the child can draw the pre-handwriting patterns using the correct directional pushes and pulls of the pencil as demonstrated in the animations .

Pre-handwriting patterns ensure children learn all the directional pushes and pulls required for letter formation and joining.

Use the non-pencil activities teaching tips if the child cant draw the patterns.

Use the paper and pencil activities teaching tips for children who struggle with some of the patterns.

Play the relevant games and activities if the child needs to develop one of the other physical skills.
