"A Project Based Handwriting and Written Expression Boot Camp."
Writing involves so many complex cognitive processes including language, attention, memory and fine motor skills, that it is not surprising that so many children struggle with writing assignments!
To support children who are challenged with expressing their ideas on paper, Dr.Chrisna, a Learning Specialist and Educational Psychologist and Ms. Tiffany, a Pediatric Occupational Therapist, have partnered to offer an exciting 2 week project based writing boot camp to prepare students for the upcoming school year: Get Ready, Set, Write!

Sentence formulation and paragraph structure
Writing mechanics (capitalization, punctuation, spelling)
Letter formation, size and alignment
Get Ready, Set, Write will offer a combination of instruction that will focus on supporting students' written expression and handwriting skills. This project based program will support the underlying executive functioning skills needed when initiating and organizing thoughts to begin a writing task. Additionally, this class emphasizes pencil grasp development and letter formation using the award-winning Handwriting Without Tears® curriculum and multi-sensory strategies.
Class is open to students in 1st-4th Grades and will be grouped according to need.
