Summer Handwriting ClinicJoshua Center for Neurological Disorders changing lives since 1996
It is estimated that up to half of the elementary school day involves some form of writing and for upper grade levels it is even more. Therefore, both the legibility and efficiency of writing can have a significant impact on academic performance.Rosenblum, Parus, and Weiss, 2003
Structured handwriting programs can lead to improved writing performance, academic success, and overall student self-esteem.Graham and Harris, 2005; Graham, Harris, Fink, 2000; Berninger et. al. 1997; Jones and Christensen, 1999
