This one day will offer teachers the knowledge and confidence to implement the Hemispheres Think Write Handwriting Programme in their school. Building a strong and effective handwriting policy in early years helps to capture the motivation of young children for writing. By giving young children the knowledge and confidence in their motor skills for handwriting it opens up endless possibilities for developing the skills for 'Being a Writer' by the end of year 2.
Writing better, sooner
The Hemispheres Think Write was originally developed as a tool to help children who showed difficulties with handwriting, makes this programme an ideal resource for not only teaching handwriting to young children, but also as a tool to support those children that need a little more help.
Key Learning Objectives:
The neurological processes behind handwriting and how to support their development.
Structure and how to implement the programme in Early Years.
Movements and activities to support the development of pre-writing skills in young children or those that are showing a delay in fine motor skills.
How to use the resources to help reorganise the thinking of older chidlren who are needing a bit of extra support to build fluidity and speed.
