The ability to produce fluent, legible handwriting with ease is something that affects attainment in most areas of the curriculum, yet many children continue to struggle with this vital skill. Based on holistic principles, this programme offers a different approach, developing the muscles of the hand - so that children gain the necessary control to produce letter forms - alongside the perceptual skills required to orientate and organize letter and words. The programme is effective for mainstream children aged 4-6 years, children with developmental co-ordination disorders and older children with mild to moderate learning difficulties. Over 400 carefuly graded exercises and activities develop hand-eye co-ordination, form constancy, spatial organization, figure-ground discrimination, orientation and laterality. The package consists of two pupil workbooks and a teacher's handbook.

The first book starts off simply with following dotted lines around circles, triangles, and squares, of different sizes, sometimes on the inside of them, sometimes on the outside of them.
The second book starts off with tiny little circles which the child puts dots inside, and then moves up to joining them, first only three or four, and then whole pages of dots.
There are some exercises within the workbooks that deal with letter formation, but most of it is a spatial, geometric way of controlling the pen.
I highly recommend it as a handwriting programme, because the children like doing it -- which is more than I can say about other programmes I've tried.
