4.0 out of 5 stars Useful for teacher or parent, 1 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Speed Up!: a Kinaesthetic Programme to Develop Fluent Handwriting (Paperback)
The book is informative, easy to read and use, reasonably priced and has photocopiable pages (ideal for small group work). It combines a number of known ideas, occupational therapy exercises, resistance exercises with multi-sensory music and movement into a short and effective programme. I used it with an 8 year old who could only manage mixed sized print and now he can write using cursive writing. He still does the exercises to build muscle memory and strength. It is not the neatest writing but its legible and he is very proud of it, and that is what counts. There has to be some student co-operation to ensure the exercises are completed daily and this is what shortens the overall time the programme takes to be effective.

I work at school have been working for over 30 years , because of health issues I was asked to run the speed up programme for children in key stage 2 who were finding to it difficult to legibly.I have been running this programme for three years now and it has been very successful,to tell the truth i wasn't very impressed when i started thought it was a strange way to teach handwriting but stuck to the programme with excellent results i recommend it
