Improves handwriting skills and enhances spelling, vocabulary and composition skills

While good handwriting skills can make a positive impression on teachers and potential employers, did you know that learning the Peterson Directed Method of handwriting creates powerful links to enhance learning of spelling, vocabulary and composition skills? A free presentation explains the impact of movement-based training in detail.

Our proven methodology focuses on smooth, rhythmic motion with verbal prompts to improve attention span, motor skills, muscle memory and ultimately handwriting fluency. The goal is to create ‘instant words’ which can be easily written with minimal use of the visual feedback system. The word patterns free up brain processing power to focus on composition of the message rather than thinking about how to put the letters together on the page.

Peterson Handwriting provides a wide variety of tools for individual students, teachers, administrators and parents that support proper training techniques for all skill levels from pre-school to adult. Our classroom and home school kits provide teachers with lesson plans, student materials and unique tools needed to get children started on the right path. We also provide tools that allow parents, teachers and administrators to analyze student progress and monitor training results.

You can utilize computer technology to implement the Peterson training techniques. Our (PDF) E-workbooks open in the free Adobe Reader allowing you to lead lessons and print your own practice materials.

Peterson Directed Handwriting is committed to improving the handwriting skills and thus the language skills of all students. To achieve this it is important to ensure that teachers have the proper tools and training needed. We offer on-line meeting rooms, webinars and customized training sessions to make it as easy as possible to provide you with assistance when you have questions.
