PREPARING CWA FOR BETTER HANDWRITING

1:30pm-4:30pm


Good handwriting is needed by students in order to display what they know and advance through grade levels. When training children with poor handwriting, adults usually have them write over and over, hoping they eventually "catch" it and improve the quality of their work. This workshop describes the factors that affect handwriting - motor skills, sensory skills, ergonomic factors and behavioral issues. Developing foundational skills will result in better handwriting as the end-product.

She took BS Occupational Therapy at UP-Manila and an 18 credit units for her Masters Degree program in Special Education at UP-Diliman.
