Little Hands – Handwriting Group

With the digital age in full force one would say “why is it important to learn handwriting skills when I can just text, type, or speak what I want to do?” Although this is a valid point you have to think about how this is going to affect the development of fine motor skills for young children. Writing is an integral part of learning how to grade force (how much pressure to use through the use of your hands), developing hand coordination and developing in-hand manipulation. Using a keyboard or a touch pad may have little affect in developing graded force, hand coordination, or in-hand manipulation.
