Watch Dr. Sheldon Horowitz talk about dysgraphia, or “Disorder of Written Expression:”
At Ladder Learning Services, we understand dysgraphia. In fact, our director has the condition, and has learned many different ways to overcome and work around it.
For handwriting skills development, we use Handwriting Without Tears (r) for both print and cursive.
For written expression skills, we use a multi-sensory grammar program: Winston Grammar, a sequential writing-skills program: Writing With Ease/Skill, and a renowned written expression program for learning challenges: Writing Skills (by Diana Hanbury King).
We use visual-spatial skills programs and handwriting accessories (grips, special paper) as needed.
We also have many supplemental activities and games that our students use to learn writing and handwriting skills (and we try to make it as fun as possible!)
Please contact us for an initial assessment to see which of these programs is right for you/your child.
