Handwriting Without Tears

May 14th, 9:00-4:00pm

Halton Down Syndrome Association is pleased to offer the opportunity to learn an easy to teach, easy to learn curriculum that makes printing mastery joyful for children, parents and their teachers.

Research supports the active teaching of handwriting. Recent findings demonstrate that writing by hand improves creative writing skills and fine motor skills. In fact, elementary students have been found to write more and faster by hand than when keyboarding.

In this one-day workshop you will learn new ways to enhance children's well-being and school readiness.

Members and Non-Members of HDSA are welcome to attend and non-members are welcome to become members of HDSA to take advantage of the reduced rate for the workshop.

Cost is $100.00 for Non-Members and $50.00 for Members and includes workshop, lunch and educational materials.

This event is designed to teach adults.  We ask that you please do not bring children to this workshop.

This course is heavily subsidized by HDSA as part of our community education programs.
