Speed Up


In just eight weekly sessions, Speed Up! provides a multi-sensory course of help for any child aged 8-13 whose handwriting is illegible, slow or lacking in fluency.  Poor handwriting hinders many children’s progress - right across the curriculum.  Unfortunately, most handwriting schemes do little to help children who are struggling with this vital skill.  Here, at last, is a new and highly effective approach.  Whether writing problems are associated with a DCD or whether they are the result of poor handwriting habits, this book will help. Developed by a leading paediatric occupational therapist and designed specifically for older children struggling with handwriting, Speed Up! gets to the root of writing difficulties by developing kinaesthetic awareness through multi-sensory activity and exercise.

The programme includes:

• a baseline assessment

• clear, fully illustrated, photocopiable instruction sheets

• an overview of the theory behind the practice

• advice on identifying underlying causes of difficulty and how to tackle them.

The sessions may be delivered by a teacher, teaching assistant, classroom assistant or therapist.  The emphasis throughout is on enjoyment, building self-esteem and developing writing confidence.  Contains 64 A4 pages.

Designed for ages 8-13.
