Happy Friday Update
Friday 5 July 2019
During a review meeting last November with 7 year old Joshua his Mum showed us these photos of his handwriting.
The first photo was taken on Monday 8 October and the second one was taken 17 days later! At that stage Joshua had only been using our program for 5 weeks. His hand/eye co-ordination had improved so much which resulted in this amazing change in his handwriting!
Does your child struggle with handwriting? Are their letters all different sizes? Do they not leave spaces between words? Do they squeeze words in at the end of the line? Do they find it hard to keep their writing on the line?

It could be that their fine motor skills are not developed properly so the brain sends a weak signal to the hand and fingers, making it difficult to hold a pencil between the finger and thumb then rest the pencil on the strong middle finger. This issue can result in a tight grip, which hurts the finger and tires the hand too quickly. This could also result in heavy or spidery handwriting.
Or it could be that they have difficulty with their hand/eye co-ordination which has a direct impact on how they write words on a page. If they cannot judge the spacing between words, the size that letters should be and where the edge of the page is, then their eyes are not sending the correct signal to the brain in order for the brain to accurately judge where the point of the pencil should be on the page. When they are writing they actually think they are leaving spaces but when they look back at what they have written they realise they have not.
The signal from the brain to the eyes is strong when they start following their writing across the page but at the end of the 2nd or 3rd line their eyes are getting tired as the signal is failing, and they really don’t want to have to re-set their eyes and judge where their hand needs to be on the next line.
Our balance and co-ordination exercises help develop fine motor skills and improve hand/eye co-ordination, and many other traits. Get in touch – we can help!
