I’m not sure what’s happened to cursive writing, but it seems a bit lost in our school system in general today. This is sad for students with dysgraphia, as cursive writing can be their biggest helper.
I’m constantly telling parents to listen to their “guts” as far as their kids go. This seems so simple, but our tricky brains will want to talk us out of those perfect intuitive feelings we have about our kids or even our dogs.
In a previous post we reviewed activities that strengthen gross motor skills to help a student struggling with dysgraphia or writing. Today, let’s refine these activities and focus more on fine motor skills.
Spring is here and with that, it’s a good idea to revisit the importance of motor skills and how they affect learning. Getting kids outside or providing the opportunity to move can be a fantastic way to get the job done.
