Writing Readiness: Preparing Your Preschooler for Handwriting

Building the foundation for writing success

The preschool years are very important in development of skills that are necessary for writing success.

Our goal at Buckhead Handwriting is to equip students with these skills using joyful and active instruction.

We build, draw, read, sing, and dance to enrich your child’s readiness and writing skills in the following areas.

  • Grip and fine motor skills
  • Alphabet awareness
  • Phonemic awareness
  • Letter formation
  • Shapes
  • Numbers
  • Physical presence

Buckhead Handwriting builds confidence

We use the award-winning Get Set for School curriculum (developed by the folks at Handwriting Without Tears) to enrich readiness and writing skills for preschool children. We start with an assessment to identify your child’s current skills, then meet them at their level of competency using visual, tactile, auditory, and kinesthetic instruction to make learning fun. Your child’s confidence and classroom success will quickly improve using a customized plan that is designed and managed by a Certified Handwriting Specialist.

From the AJC: Start 'em Young!

“One of the primary tips I encourage is to have fine motor activities in the classrooms,” said Denise Donica, Professor of Occupational Therapy at East Carolina University. “Get objects and toys that are motor-based with levers, knobs and switches. Pull out board games and card games.”

Schedule an Assessment

The first step toward improving your child's handwriting is scheduling an assessment with the certified specialists at Buckhead Handwriting. We're eager to help your child succeed!
