Rx for Writing - Fundamentals

This lecture and laboratory workshop provides JK to Gr. 3 educators with foundational understandings from brain research on how handwriting develops from a biological and cognitive development perspective and the instructional implications.

  • the neurological basis of writing development
  • a multi-model approach to design and implement handwriting and written expression lesson plans
