This year has been a struggle getting one of my sons to write neatly. Sometimes his handwriting is so atrocious I go cross-eyed trying to decipher his hieroglyphics.

You can imagine the griping and fuming that ensued.

Does your kiddo struggle with having neat handwriting? Use this easy 8 step guide to start improving their writing today! Although I work on so many more skills than handwriting, a lot of kiddos need help with their handwriting, so I get it! There is nothing more frustrating for a kiddo to work really hard on an assignment and then have their teacher not be able to read it.
Left-handed children can find skills more difficult because they cannot easily use some of the right-handed equipment they are given and they can become labelled as clumsy, awkward, or difficult. Left-handed children may have trouble when they start learning to write and unless they are taught the correct skills it is easy for them to smudge their work and make a mess. Despite these complications, the Magic Link handwriting programme has been widely proven to teach neat flowing handwriting. Letter formation and letter direction is taught in exactly the same way as right-handers and produces unprecedented, fantastic results.
