SIZE MATTERS HANDWRITING PROGRAM
Results in handwriting legibility and proficiency can be seen in as little as 30 days with regular practice.
Chaya Gottesman is the first Occupational Therapist in the State of New York with a certification in the evidence-based-program, Size Matters Handwriting Program (SMHP).
SMHP, created by Doctor Beverly H. Moskowitz, is the most efficient way to create confident handwriters. When "Dr. Bev" saw that when the focus was simply shifted from letter FORMATION to letter SIZE the students' writing became more readable. Her method has since been backed by the largest research study done in handwriting
HOW IT WORKS
The only way to achieve legible handwriting is to PRACTICE it.
But how do we get our kiddos to learn and practice their writing?
Just the way you hide veggies in your child’s favorite dish, the Size Matters Handwriting Program embeds it's concepts into objective, achievable lessons that empower your kids by getting to score their own work.
Most Handwriting Curriculums focus on letter formation but recent research has proven that uniform letter size leads to legible handwriting. Focus on size, form will follow.
SMHP uses fun and games of chance to encourage children to become excited and motivated to challenge themselves to slow their writing down and focus on their motor control.
The ultimate result? Uniform letter size.
