By Sue Smits, Morrells & Mark Stewart, Morrells

Achieving legible handwriting can be challenging for some children and adults, but this essential skill can be easily transformed with the correct support, knowledge and handwriting script. This practical, hands-on session with Sue and Mark will help both left and right-handers to use the correct pencil grip and handwriting style to ensure speedy, pain free and legible handwriting. We will be busting the many myths about handwriting as well as sharing our knowledge of what goes wrong and why some children struggle more than others with their handwriting.
