Strategies for Teaching Handwriting to LD Students.
Farrell, Dorothy
Six strategies for teaching handwriting skills to learning disabled elementary students are presented, along with a rationale and illustrated step-by-step teaching procedures for each. Skills addressed include the following: (1) improving eye-hand coordination through dot-to-dot alphabet letter tracing; (2) teaching basic strokes in manuscript writing; (3) teaching linking of letters in cursive writing; (4) teaching right-handed and left-handed students how to hold a pen or pencil properly by separate procedures; (5) teaching students how to stay on the baseline with correct letter size; and (6) developing fine-motor skills to strengthen the hand and finger muscles.
